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.
Educators can now complete an Interest Form for expedition opportunities in 2013!
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.
Educator, student, corporate, and conservation professional Fellows are exceptional team members. They not only bring a heightened level of interest and inquiry to an Earthwatch project, but are in a position to inspire the next generation to become leaders, scientists, and actively engaged citizens. An Earthwatch Fellowship is a powerful opportunity to make a difference for yourself, your students, your career, and for the world we share.
Through our Fellows, Earthwatch Institute hopes to inspire and build a future generation of environmental leaders who value the environment and prioritize it in their everyday choices while engaging in both individual and collective action. We want all people to have an increased capacity to act successfully in daily life on broad understanding of how nature works, how people relate to the environment and how to do so sustainably. We feel it is key that future generations are able to incorporate appropriate environmental considerations into daily decisions about consumption, lifestyle, career and civics.
In order to educate people and develop them as impassioned environmental leaders, it is essential that they become environmentally literate. It is through environmental education, that environmentally literate individuals are formed. This fellowship is an opportunity to have hands on environmental experience, learn about environmental education principals, plan environmental action for communities, and ultimately influence our future leaders.
