National Wildlife Federation: Graduate Student Fellowships

The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) hosts graduate students for its NWF EcoLeaders Program. Each fellowship is for a term of 4 -6 months (based on student schedule), and while fellows spend various amounts of time on their projects each week, the average amount of time spent will be 40 hours monthly. The fellow will receive a stipend, professional development assistance and networking opportunities, and the possibility of academic credit for successful completion of the project, as an independent study or integration of fellowship project into course curriculula. Fellows can be from and work in any U.S. location.

Graduate students from any college or university within the U.S are eligible. Applications are invited from students in all disciplines and are not limited to environmental studies majors.

Note that the program is not offered every year. Check the fellowship page for the latest information.
