EARTHWATCH FELLOWSHIPS

Teachers and students with two weeks to spare can apply for grants worth up to Pounds 2,000 to cover travel to any country (out of 40) to work on a professional research project in the earth, life or human sciences. Previous projects, such as studying acid rain damage in Czech forests, have provided ample material for follow-up classroom work. Applicants submit a short essay on what they will gain through participation. Earthwatch members can also join discovery weekends and special events throughout the year.
