Abstract: 

Earthwatch's mission is to engage people worldwide in scientific field research and education in order to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment.

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. An Earthwatch Fellowship is a powerful opportunity to make a difference for yourself, your students, your career, and for the world we share.

Consider applying for a fellowship if you are:

  • A K-12 classroom educator
  • Passionate about teaching
  • Looking to learn more about environmental issues
  • Excited to collaborate with a team of teachers from around the country for 10-14 days over the summer
  • Committed to engaging your students and school community outside the classroom
  • Interested in how scientific research is conducted
  • To apply, complete the Educator Interest Form at http://www.earthwatch.org/aboutus/education/edopp/.

    Once you have filled out the Educator Interest Form, we'll contact you if we have grant funding for which you are eligible and direct you to the online Educator Application. If you're not eligible for any of our fellowship grants, we'll keep your form on file and notify you when we have funding for which you are eligible.

    Earthwatch receives funding on a rolling basis. Consequently, fellowships will also be awarded on a rolling basis until funding is exhausted.
