The National Wildlife Federation is currently accepting applications for graduate student fellows for their Campus Ecology Fellowships program. The program grants monetary fellowships to graduate students to work with their school communities to help address ecological impacts both on and off campus. The deadline for applying is July 14th, 2013.

This year, the fellowships are organized around four NWF campaigns, each engaging a critical area of environmental impact. They are, protecting wildlife in cities and suburbs, saving Appalachian Forests and Wildlife, stopping expansion of dirty energy, and clean energy solutions. Fellows will work closely with NWF staff within each of these areas to advance the goals of each campaign.

Since 2000, National Wildlife Federation has awarded over 150 Campus Ecology Fellowships to students across the country working on a variety of projects. In addition to the monetary support provided to fellows, the program channels project support, leadership development, and recognition of their accomplishments to a broader community. More information on the fellowship program, and applications, are available on the NWF website.
