Subject: [Envirolink] Campus Ecology – Autumn AIS course

Happy Summer everyone!

I know you may not be seeing many students for a little while, but wanted to share this class we are teaching in Autumn quarter since it’s environment related and fulfills I&S credit. Cynthia Updegrave will be teaching, for the third time, an indigenous environment class titled “Bringing Back the Wealth: Engaging with the Campus Ecology.” This is a hands-on course that includes walking tours of campus, local field trips, and stories from elders in the Native community.

Please share with your students as appropriate. Thank you!

All the best,

Wildlands Studies Field Programs and the Gilman Scholarship

Advisors: Please share this important and time-sensitive scholarship information with your advisees.


Each year at least one Wildlands Studies participant earns a Gilman Scholarship. Although our field programs are one of the most affordable (usually less than tuition, room and board for the term), it can still be tough to make it work. Gilman Scholarship winners have joined us in Belize, Nepal, Tasmania, and we currently have one traveling with us to Nepal this fall! This scholarship awards up to $5000 for study abroad. BUT they have tight deadlines. The Winter or Spring 2019 program deadline is just when quarter students return to campus – October 2, 2018.


Wildlands Studies creates academically rigorous, rich, immersive learning experiences that connect students with the natural world, and bring your classroom experience to life. At the same time, we introduce you to active researchers and help establish your professional network. All facets that lead to employment and graduate school.

If you are a Pell Grant recipient, we encourage you to consider the Benjamin A Gilman Scholarship.

If this scholarship is not right for you, use our scholarship webpage to find one that is!

We welcome all applications for our 2018 Winter and Spring field programs.

As always, we are here to answer questions.

Pickering Foreign Affairs Fellowship, Donald M. Payne International Development Graduate Fellowship Program), representing America’s interests abroad. Others provide research experience (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Junior Fellowship Program).

Brotherhood Initiative (BI) at UW

The benefits of study abroad are well documented, from increased confidence to an expanded worldview — and college students who study abroad are more likely to do better in school and graduate on time.

But that experience is often unattainable for a particular group of students: men of color. Of the more than 300,000 U.S. undergraduates who study abroad each year, an overwhelming majority are white women.

For students at the University of Washington, the Brotherhood Initiative (BI) wants to help level the field.
