TEACH EARTH AWARDS
Fellowships are typically awarded by the beginning of May each year, on a rolling basis until funding is exhausted.
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, and on-site transportation. Educator fellowships also provide a stipend to offset some out-of-pocket travel expenses to and from the expedition site.
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 excerpts from a personal journal, a thank-you letter to your funder, copies of any media coverage you have received from your participation, and a lesson/community plan.
