The Nature Conservancy’s Hubbard Fellowship Program: 2014-2015

Regular readers of this blog are familiar with The Nature Conservancy’s Hubbard Fellowship program.  Our two current Fellows, Eliza and Anne, have been frequent contributors to this blog over the last 6 months.  While they’ll be here in Nebraska for another half year, it’s already time to start finding the next class of Fellows.  If you’re a recent college graduate in a conservation-related field, please consider applying for this opportunity!

Applications for the 2014-15 Hubbard Fellowship are due January 8, 2014.  More information on the Fellowship can be found on our brochure.  To apply, visit http://nature.org/careers and find job #41679.

Anne and Eliza have only been here a little more than 6 months, and have had what seems like several years' worth of experiences.

The Claire M. Hubbard Young Leaders in Conservation Fellowship is a one-year position focused on the ecology and conservation of the Great Plains.  Fellows are full-time salaried employees of The Nature Conservancy, and are exposed to nearly every aspect of working for a conservation organization, including ecology, land management, and ecological restoration, but also marketing, philanthropy, conservation planning, and more.  It’s a great way to transition from college to career by solving that perennial problem for recent graduates: How do you get work experience when you need experience to get work?

To see what this year’s Fellows have been up to, visit the Hubbard Fellowship Page of this blog and read some of their blog posts from the first six months with us.

    And as the pictures prove, the weather is always beautiful up there in central Nebraska.
    Seriously … This seems to me one of the best such intern- , er, fellowships available. I have really enjoyed the guest blogging. (Not that we ever get tired of your writing, Chris. At least I don’t.)
