Full Scholarships for Youth and Chaperones to Attend Workshop at Cornell Lab

Thanks to the Thomas Cade Fund, Celebrate Urban Birds will provide full scholarships for urban youth living in underserved communities to attend a two-day Birds, Careers, and Conservation Workshop at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology August 7-8. Scholarships will cover travel, accommodations, meals, and cost of the workshop. We are looking for outstanding teens, 15-21 years old, who are interested in learning more about careers in science and conservation and who would like to have a positive impact that will benefit their community. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need and academic potential.
Apply by June 10, 2018!
The workshop will focus on careers in the sciences, learning about conservation science, and what youth can do in their neighborhoods to make a difference. In addition, participants will learn about Cornell, learn about cutting-edge conservation science research at the Lab, explore the value of participatory science and critical thinking, and learn about paths to higher education. Staff from seven departments at the Cornell Lab will share their expertise and time.
If you are a community leader or educator and would like to nominate one or more youth to receive scholarships for the workshop, please fill out the application here:
