2013 George Melendez Wright Climate Change Youth Initiative

The National Park Service and the UW College of the Environment are pleased to announce the 2013 George Melendez Wright Climate Change Youth Initiative.

This program provides opportunities for young people to work on diverse issues related to climate change and its effects in national parks. The opportunities take two forms – competitive fellowships awarded to advanced graduate students (Masters and Doctorate levels) to support their independent research, and paid internships in which undergraduate or beginning graduate students work for approximately 12 weeks on projects in research, interpretation, park operations, policy development, or other fields. Attached, please find the fellowship announcement.

Additional information, along with application instructions, can be found on the Initiative website at: CCYI.org

Thank you for your help in distributing this information.
