Announcing the Nature in Words Fellowship
Pierce Cedar Creek Institute, a private environmental education center, is pleased to announce Nature in Words, an exciting, new opportunity for undergraduate students interested in writing. Nature in Words is modeled after the Institute's science research program and Gordon Art Fellowship. This unique program will provide an undergraduate student, in conjunction with a faculty mentor, the opportunity to spend the summer at Pierce Cedar Creek Institute, utilizing the close interaction with the natural world available here to inspire and develop their writing skills. The Nature in Words Fellowship will provide an undergraduate student the chance to bring together his or her love of nature and writing into one unique learning experience. The undergraduate fellow is eligible for a $3500 stipend, on-site housing, and partial meal support during their 10-12 week summer experience. Faculty advisors are also eligible for a stipend that can be used for time, supplies, travel, or other project support. This program is open to full-time students who have not yet completed the requirements for graduation and attend one of the consortium member institutions. More information about the program is found in the application, which is available at the Nature in Words webpage on the Institute website.Proposals must be submitted by February 25, 2011.
