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.
