NWF Fellowships

The National Wildlife Federation's Campus Ecology Program is again sponsoring a fellowship for undergraduate and graduate students working to address climate change on campus.
Fellows confront global warming on their campuses and help to educate and engage
the campus community on global warming impacts and solutions.
GMC students are encouraged to look over the Request for Proposals (pdf), and contact me about how your ideas to reduce our footprint might support ongoing campus efforts. I would be thrilled to help the right student submit a proposal and coordinate efforts in one of the Fellowship's core projects:

• Implementing energy efficiency and conservation initiatives on existing or new buildings.
• Conducting a greenhouse gas inventory and developing a climate action plan
• Hosting a climate gathering involving representatives from three or more campuses

Consider how these programs might fit in with your fall courses, the DEEP Scholars team, the Student Campus Greening Fund proposal process, your student organization, and other preexisting efforts for a Green-er Mountain College.
