Fellowships

The Kenneth and Marion Parkhurst Natural Areas Fellowship is designed to provide experiential learning for a prospective leader of natural history and environmental interpretation. The applicant must show leadership skills and initiative, as well as possess high quality communication and interpersonal skills. The applicant may be enrolled in any concentration or program, but will be expected to take courses appropriate to the understanding of natural history, ecological processes of the Natural Areas, and the development of interpretive and research skills. The applicant must demonstrate a strong interest in and commitment to a lifelong pursuit of knowledge and discovery about the natural world, communication of this knowledge, and values which provide for the preservation of natural areas and biodiversity.
