If you are selected as a fellowship recipient, an Earthwatch Program Coordinator will provide you with the information you will need to get into the field and what the program expects from you upon your return. Your fellowship will cover the full cost of your expedition, including meals, accommodations, research permits, equipment, travel to and from the expedition site, and on-site transportation.
In return for your fellowship, Earthwatch asks that you help support its mission and ensure its renewed funding by completing a Volunteer Evaluation at the end of the expedition. We also ask you to provide a Field Report within 30 days after the end of the expedition, including an essay detailing your field experience and a thank-you letter to your funder. We also appreciate you forwarding us any copies or links to any media coverage you may have received from your participation.
