2018 Bonderman Fellowshi

The 2018 Bonderman Fellowship application is now available!
Deadline: January 8, 2018, 12 noon (PST)

The 2018 Bonderman Travel Fellowship application is open and we encourage you to consider applying! This fellowship offers University of Washington graduate/professional and undergraduate students (from the Seattle, Tacoma, and Bothell campuses) an opportunity to engage in independent exploration and travel abroad.

The first information session is next Wednesday, 11/1, 12:30-1:30 pm in the Allen Auditorium, Allen Library.

David Bonderman – the donor – wishes to give students an opportunity to experience learning and growth in new and unexpected ways. Bonderman Fellows will undertake international travel on their own for eight months, to six or more countries in two or more major regions of the world. Through solo travel the Fellows will focus on exploration and discovery, learning about the world and themselves in it.

Up to eight graduate and eight undergraduate Bonderman Fellowships will be awarded in spring 2018. Each Fellowship carries a $23,000 award to be used only for extended solo international travel. Fellows may not conduct research, pursue an academic project, or participate in a formal program or organization.

Eligibility:
All applicants must be enrolled (for graduate students “on leave” status is not considered enrolled) and in good standing at the UW during the quarter the application is due and must hold US citizenship or permanent resident status. Good standing in this regard refers not only to academic but also disciplinary and conduct standing. Additionally:

GRADUATE/PROFESSIONAL STUDENTS: All students in graduate or professional degree programs are eligible to apply.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS: All undergraduate students with senior credit standing AND who also meet ONE of the following criteria are eligible to apply:

  • at least a 3.60 cumulative UW GPA by the start of Winter 2018; OR
  • participation and good standing in the University Honors Program (Interdisciplinary, Departmental or College Honors) or in UW Tacoma’s Global Honors Program, by the start of Winter 2018. Undergraduates in one of these Honors programs DO NOT need to have 3.60 UW GPA or higher to apply, but simply must be in good standing in their respective programs, whatever that might mean.

To learn more about this extraordinary opportunity, please attend one of the information sessions listed on the website.

Applications must be submitted by 12:00 pm (noon) January 8, 2018.

2017-18 WA AWRA Fellowship

It is again time to encourage your graduate students working in a water resources related field to apply for the Washington State Section of the American Water Resources Association’s annual graduate fellowship.

Details regarding the requirements for and benefits from the fellowship are outlined in the attached application.

There is one big change this year. In past years the deadline for submitting the application has been mid-November. However, during the last two years this date has proved problematic for both the review committee and students. Consequently, after consulting with student chapter representatives and our own membership, it was decided that a mid February deadline would work better for all parties. You will note that the deadline for this round of applications will be Friday, February 16, 2018.

Apply here: AWRA_FELLOWSHIP App 17-18 v1

Scholarships to Make Montana Your Classroom

Scholarships available to make Montana your classroom!

Why Here? The Crown of the Continent is an ecological crossroads where plant and animal communities from the Pacific Northwest, eastern prairies, southern Rockies, and northern boreal forests mingle. These glacier-carved mountains and valleys are also the headwaters for North America. Nowhere else on the continent retains its full complement of native wildlife – wolves, grizzly bears, moose, wolverine, elk, and mountain goats, to name a few. Rural communities and small cities have been built up around natural resource industries, tourism, and agriculture. The Crown is an example of a collaboratively managed landscape where diverse people work together to bridge cultures, promote sustainable use, steward natural resources and support vibrant communities. It is an enchanting landscape that easily captures hearts and minds.

Why Now? Study Forests and Communities, Biogeography, Community-Based Approaches to Wildlife Management, Ecology of Threatened and Endangered Species, Sustainability and Agriculture, Watershed Dynamics, and Wildlife Policy and Rural Communities. Earn upper-division credits from the University of Montana. Network with conservation professionals in the West. Make lasting Connections.

Why Us? Swan Valley Connections is a non-profit located in Montana’s Crown of the Continent. We offer students the opportunity to study natural resource management through experience. When we aren’t teaching, our instructors are in the field monitoring, researching, restoring and working towards community based solutions. Our conservation work forms the basis of experience from which we develop our education programs. We believe that a deep understanding of natural history and ecological processes combined with empathy for human communities leads to innovative and thoughtful stewardship.
