  • Share It is awesome. I hope you will take a look and use some of the resources. This is an early preview of their new website. And you can also use this site. for resources. Time on the site is a good investment. Did you know that there are alliances within the National Geographic that will link you with people in your state? Bonnie Bracey Sutton

The application deadline for all summer 2011 fellowships has passed. Please look for our 2012 application in September!

But you can read, learn and get ready for the next round of fellowship. I was an Earthwatch fellow for several wonderful expeditions.
My very favorite was in Mallorca , Spain. I can help you
understand the way of the expeditions. It was eye opening and transformational.

Earthwatch fellowships enable critical partners to participate in research expeditions worldwide. Each year, Earthwatch's Fellowship Programs enable hundreds of students, teachers, conservation professionals, and corporate employees to join expeditions at little or no out-of-pocket expense. Earthwatch Fellows are emissaries of the Earthwatch mission, sharing their experiences and new knowledge with thousands of students, teachers, and colleagues upon their return. Read on to learn about fellowship opportunities available for you.

Fellowships for Students
Earthwatch offers fully funded expeditions to High School students selected by competitive application through its Student Fellowships Programs. As a student fellow, you'll join a team of teens from across the US to assist leading scientists conduct field research at one of our research sites around the world. Student fellowships are a great way to experience science first-hand and help to answer some of today's most important questions.

Students can also volunteer on our Teen Team Expeditions, bring their families along on our Family Teams, or help their teachers organize a High School or College or University Group expedition.

Fellowships for Educators
Teachers of all subjects and all grade levels are encouraged to apply to join Earthwatch expeditions through our Educator Fellowship Programs. As an educator fellow, you'll participate on a fully funded expedition assignment, receive a travel stipend to offset some of your transportation costs, and bring your expedition experiences into your classroom by creating and implementing exciting lesson/unit plans that reflect the knowledge gained from your time in the field. Educator fellows are ambassadors of environmentalism, cutting edge field research, and local involvement in classrooms across the country.

Educator Fellows selected for Earthwatch's Live From the Field program receive all the benefits listed above, plus tools and resources to communicate with their classrooms from their expeditions, often in real time!
