Support Science Education
Field Projects International’s programs bring aspiring naturalists, scientists, and conservationists from around the world together. Even if you can’t join us in the field, you can still support our mission of providing quality science education at this crucial time in history.
Science and conservation do not happen in a vacuum, but instead rely upon a cross-fertilization of ideas and perspectives. To understand and address world problems, we desperately need to have global conversations, collaborations, and most of all: community.
As a registered non-profit organization, FPI is committed to bringing students, researchers, and instructors from many different countries and cultures together to study the planet’s fragile biodiversity, and in doing so, helping them to also learn about conservation issues and each other. In 2016 alone, we have proudly awarded competitive scholarships to 9 students from 7 different countries, who will now be able to join a similarly multicultural group of paying students.
Participants in our programs live in close quarters at remote field stations: studying, eating, and engaging in education and recreational activities with one another. While science remains the focus, our students also learn about their host countries, each other’s homes and backgrounds, and how to work together on tough problems while supporting one another. This leads to not only reflection and personal growth, but also to friendships and insights that extend well beyond the field course.
Why Give Now:
We need your help to keep the momentum going this holiday season.
It is our belief that greater science and cultural understanding are the best paths forward to a better world.
