Earthwatch Institute engages people worldwide in scientific field research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment by putting them in the field where they can assist scientists in field work. Fellowships are available to educators who wish to participate in an Earthwatch expedition. Expeditions are ongoing research projects confronting critical, current issues, run by qualified and
respected members of the scientific community. Earthwatch expeditions are not tours, not ecotourism, not adventure travel; they are short-term volunteer opportunities directly assisting scientists in their field research. Adventuresome and innovative elementary, middle, and high school educators and administrators who are interested in natural and cultural conservation, sustainability, and life-long learning are eligible to apply for the Education Fellowship Program. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Early applications are eligible for a wider variety of projects. Fellowships will be made until available funding is exhausted. Fellowships are still available only for educators in San Francisco, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. (Please note: there is a non-refundable $35 application fee required.)
