Welcome to the Earthwatch Research Proposal for student expeditions
Earthwatch student expeditions for youth aged 15-18 an opportunity to spend 11-13 intensive days as part of a scientific research team. The aim of these programs is to excite the students' imagination, expand their potential, stimulating their curiosity and confidence about science and technology. The student programs consist of both competitive fellowship programs as well as dedicated school groups that reward creative thinkers.
Earthwatch student programs also aim to support the research and education initiatives of scientists by providing talented students as active field assistants helping to collect data, a small research grant to cover costs, and mentoring opportunities. We are especially interested in exposing students to the diversity of field research as well as exposure to technology, innovative research equipment and the lab environment.
Proposals are reviewed based on scientific merit, appropriateness of volunteer activities, safety and logistical viability, expected project outcomes and impacts, and Earthwatch’s available support for the project.For more information see www.earthwatch.org/research.
