International Summer Research Field School Opportunities for Students

My name is Moriah, and I am the Director of Communications for the Institute for Field Research. We are a nonprofit organization based in Los Angeles that runs research-based, peer-reviewed field schools all over the world. I am reaching out to make you aware of our field schools which offer unique opportunities for your students to take part in hands-on, research projects in the fields of environmental studies, conservation biology, wildlife/forest ecology, and primate behavior.

We are running a number of field schools this summer (some in partnership with the Borneo Nature Foundation) to which any student above the age of 18 can apply. Our field schools are vetted by our academic board to ensure the Principal Investigators are following the highest academic standards for research and are dedicated to pedagogy. Not only do these field schools provide students with hands-on, study abroad opportunities, they also offer transferable academic credits from our partner institution, Connecticut College. Students accepted into one of our field schools are eligible to apply for our need and merit based scholarships. For more information about our programs please explore these links to our Environmental Studies field schools:

Indonesia: Primate Behavior

Ireland: Birr – Human-Environment Interaction

Indonesia: Rungan Forest Ecology/ Conservation

Indonesia: Peat Ecology

Greenland: Arctic Vikings – Archaeology & Climate Change

US – CA: La Brea Tar Pits – Paleontology, Paleoenvironment

Please view the attachments for a digital postcard of our Indonesia programs as well as a general PDF of our ES programs. We invite you to spread knowledge of these opportunities to your students, and please reach out to me with any further questions you may have about our programs.
