Field Projects International is a not-for-profit organization offering hands-on field-based training for undergraduates and recent graduates at various biodiverse research stations around the world. These opportunities are ideal for those who already are, or are considering becoming, majors in biology, anthropology, ecology, environmental science, zoology, or pre-veterinary science.
Students may be able to receive credit for participation in select courses and other field programs. We also offer scholarships for students to attend our courses for free. Deadlines for applications for all of our programs are soon approaching, and spots are given away on a first come, first serve basis, so applying early is always an advantage.
