Apply today for a £500 award that offers you the chance to make a difference for the environment.
This year, Earthwatch are offering awards to students who wish to get involved in hands-on conservation. You could find yourself studying meerkats in the Kalahari, monitoring the effects of climate change on the coral reefs of the Bahamas, or even tagging leatherback turtles in Costa Rica.
Whichever Earthwatch project you join, you will:
- make a difference for the environment
- gain practical experience of global environmental research, using widely applicable scientific techniques
- work as part of a diverse, international team of like-minded volunteers
- enhance your current studies and career prospects
- visit some of the worlds most beautiful and remote locations
"An amazing, life-changing experience that just leaves you wanting more; a fun, rewarding, challenging, unique and a very special 2 weeks that I would go back to in a flash."
- Jonathan Crowley, Oxford. Whale Sharks of Baja 2002
The awards offer a £500 grant towards the cost of an Earthwatch international field research project and are open to students of any discipline with a passion for the environment and conservation.
Grants will be awarded according to applicants' ability to demonstrate enthusiasm for conservation in their application, and their ideas for communicating their experiences with others.
