The Amphibian Foundation is delighted to announce a $1,250 scholarship for our Conservation Research Bridge Program.
We are delighted to announce a tuition scholarship for our Conservation Research Bridge Program. We have two of these scholarships available through an award provided by Southern Conservation Partners. The $1,250 scholarships are for students accepted into our Bridge Program. Students would be enrolled at least part-time for conservation research studies.
The goal of the scholarship is to train a Bridge Program student in conservation techniques and offer career development opportunities in a structured and mentored environment. Students will be participating in hands-on research and conservation programs at the Amphibian Foundation, and mentored in designing their own experiments and research.
Students may also be eligible for other scholarships as well including the Women in Biology Diversity and Inclusion scholarship and the Amphibian Foundation’s Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion scholarship. Special arrangements can be made for the number of hours per week (minimum 20h/week) and the duration of the program (minimum February-July, 2022). Housing is not included so living arrangements must be made by the student, though we are here to assist.
There are two of these scholarships available on a first come, first served basis, so apply today to get your application started!
Eligibility: Anyone interested in amphibians and reptiles of the Southeast United States who identifies as a member of a historically underrepresented group in conservation, with a focus on women and racial minorities. Eligible, admitted, and deposited students will be awarded scholarships on a first come, first served basis. Various JEDI awards are funded through several sources including a Women in Biology (diversity and inclusion grant), Upwell Coffee, and our amazing turtle sponsors who have adopted and named turtles in our long-term urban ecology research project: AFTER.amphibianfoundation.org
