    Full Scholarships to Attend Youth Workshop at Cornell Lab

    Full Scholarships to Attend Youth Workshop at Cornell Lab
    Deadline extended to Friday March 7

    Thanks to Kaytee Avian Foundation we can provide full scholarships for urban youth to attend a two-day Birds, Careers, and Conservation Workshop at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology on April 10-11. Scholarships will cover travel, accommodations, meals, and cost of the workshop. We are looking for outstanding teens, 12-18 years old, who are interested in learning more about careers in science and conservation and who would like to have an impact in their community. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need ANDacademic potential.
    Please see a description of our October 2013 workshop to better understand the activities offered.

    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.
