An Earth-Loving Fellowship For Adventurous Teachers

Jul 31, 2011

Are you a K-12 teacher who dreams of getting paid to get out of the classroom and into the field to learn about cutting edge environmental research and conservation efforts? The Earthwatch Educator Fellowship funds you to do just this!

Earthwatch Educator Fellows are funded by the Earthwatch Institute to go on expeditions around the world and work alongside leading environmental scientists. What you give back is a blog and presentations on your experience to encourage others to be involved in conservation efforts.

You might think you need years of experience, a science background or a certain education level to be eligible for the Earthwatch Educator Fellowship. Not at all! According to the Earthwatch Institute, “all you need is a sense of adventure, a deep curiosity, a love of meaningful work, and a desire to make a difference.”

If you ask me, that sounds exceptional.
