International Sustainability Fellows
Join a cohort of international conservation leaders!
Work with communities in Chile, Vietnam, India or Zambia
Learn leadership skills and connect with international partners to work on natural resource projects
The College of Forestry and Conservation (CFC) International Sustainability Fellows program will support undergraduate students to study abroad in Zambia, Chile, India, or Vietnam. These study abroad programs are based on long-standing relationships with universities, government agencies, and NGOs in these four nations. Depending on the program, students will study wildlife management, community-based resource protection, forest restoration, and/or sustainable tourism. Students selected as International Sustainability Fellows will take a one-credit preparatory course, which will involve two pre-course meetings regarding the ecological and social context of each cooperating nation. After they return, Fellows will meet three times to synthesize their experiences and prepare a public presentation.
