Field Naturalists offer a broad skill set, ranging from forest inventory and spatial analysis to community engagement and landscape restoration. We will pair you with a student whose research will form the core of a master’s project that meets your needs. A statement of interest is requested by Nov. 1 and a full proposal by Nov. 15, emailed to our program director, Walter Poleman.
Winning proposals call for a $6,000 partner contribution to support the student. Your partnership includes:
- more than a year of collaboration, beginning as soon as early 2024;
- literature review and other academic research to support your project;
- field work season during summer 2024;
- continued collaboration culminating in a draft by December and a final report by spring of 2025.
