NWF's Campus Ecology Fellowships

The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) is an environmental leader and since 2000 they have awarded over 170 Campus Ecology Fellowships to US undergraduate and graduate students engaging global warming related issues.

Students are awarded Fellowships for projects ranging from campus-wide energy audits to implementing sustainable forestry practices. In addition to recognition, Fellows receive a modest monetary grant, project support and leadership development.

In 2013, NWF is offering an Emerging Leaders Fellowship track that awards Fellowships to post-graduate, young professionals (ages 21-35) interested in career development and leadership opportunities within the conservation movement. These Fellows are provided with leadership opportunities, skills training and seed funding for their entrepreneurial efforts.

This year NWF Fellows will work on protecting wildlife and habitat in the Appalachian region, in urban and suburban settings, curbing carbon pollution and the expansion of dirty energy sources and creating new energy solutions.

The 2013 class of NWF Fellows is comprised of 21 Fellows (12 Campus Ecology Fellows and 9 Emerging Leader Fellows) hailing from 12 states across the country and the District of Columbia.
