My Place in Nature: 2021 Summer Institute

On May 1st, FIELD Edventures is opening their Fellowship Award Application to the general public. This fellowship can be applied towards attending the My Place in Nature: 2021 Summer Institute. A limited number of fellowships are available. Each individual or team member must complete this form by May 30, 2021, or until all fellowships are awarded, whichever comes first. Individuals not affiliated with a school team may still apply and will be considered for a fellowship award provided that the individuals are willing to join a school team in their geographic region for the learning and projects of My Place in Nature: 2021 Summer Institute. We will award fellowships within two weeks of application submission. Once fellowships have been awarded, the cost of the 4-day virtual and 1 day field experience will be $450-- a great value.
We hope that you or your team will take advantage of the fellowship opportunity and that we will see you online July 13, 15, 20, and 22!
