Hey all! I'm Spencer, and I'll be surveying pollinators at Lake Ilo NWR in Dunn Center, ND this summer through the US Fish & Wildlife Service! I'm currently attending the University of Wisconsin - Madison, majoring in Wildlife Ecology. Any other North Dakota interns here?

 Antioch University Seattle offers a scholarship for AmeriCorps members that is a close to match of the AmeriCorps award for those that enroll.  The MAED in Urban Environmental Education at Antioch University Seattle, also has scholarship opportunities for enrollees.  Together these resources can make a significant impact toward reducing the costs for a graduate degree.  They are accepting applications for their third cohort of students will begin the 2017-18 graduate program this summer, August 14th.  

About the MAED in Urban Environmental Education Program

IslandWood and Antioch University Seattle’s M.A.Ed. in Urban Environmental Education (UEE) is a first of a kind program that recognizes the need for diverse educators with the skills and passion to contribute to the social and ecological health of urban settings.  Our graduate students are rethinking traditional methods of place-based and experiential environmental education and are developing new ways of connecting people to the nature of the city.  In extending our focus to the city and stepping into place where most of us live, justice issues become an integral part of living in “the environment”.  Graduate classes are carried out in the city, on the streets, observing and investigating through the perspectives of those who live there – from the inside out. Urban stewardship is reimagined as a way to promote sustainability and resilience, equity and inclusion.  To learn more about the program, please check out our website: .  Or apply now:
