Apply for a Campus Ecology Fellowship

February 27th, 2013 | Daniel.Cespedes@oregonstate.edu

The National Wildlife Federation is now accepting applications for Campus Ecology Fellowships and their new NWF Emerging Leader Fellowships.

Since 2000, National Wildlife Federation has awarded over 150 Campus Ecology Fellowships to students across the country working on projects ranging from campus-wide energy audits to implementing sustainable forestry practices; reaching more than 2.5 million students, faculty, staff and community members at the fellowship campuses. 

NWF’s Campus Ecology Fellows confront global warming on their campuses and help to educate and engage the campus community on global warming impacts and solutions. Monetary fellowship grants are awarded to undergraduate and graduate students working with other members of the faculty, staff, or administration on projects designed to help reverse global warming on campus and beyond. In addition to a modest grant, Fellows also receive project support, leadership development, recognition of their accomplishments and other perks.
“The NWF Campus Ecology Fellowship gave me one of my first opportunities to take a formal leadership role in political debates about environmental issues that I was studying in school. It was a formative moment in applying my passions for research and activism in service of a lifelong dedication to the health of social and ecological justice.”
–Emma Galaas Mulaney, 2005 Campus Ecology Fellow
Now in 2013, the NWF is offering an Emerging Leaders Fellowship track which will offer Fellowships to post-graduate, young professionals (ages 21-35) interested in career development and leadership opportunities within the conservation movement.  The program is an extension of NWF’s successful Campus Ecology Fellows Program.  Throughout the fellowship term, selected applicants will be provided with leadership opportunities through NWF and our state affiliates, seed funding for their entrepreneurial efforts, additional leadership and skills trainings, and a diverse support network of peers and mentors.  2013 is the inaugural year of this Fellowship program.
