ESF CareerFellowships—Conference Applicaon1
The ESF Career Fellowships are intended
to promote the career and professional
development of students at the State
University of New York College of
Environmental Science and Forestry.
These
Fellowships are made possible by
the generous donations of alumni and
supporters of the college, who are
committed to solving environmental
challenges, and supporting students who
strive to do the same.
The ESF Career Fellowships support
internships, interdisciplinary projects, and
conference attendance for undergraduate
and graduate students. ESF Career
Fellows are exceptional students who
seek to pursue experiences that can truly
shape their development. With the help
of the ESF Career Fellowships, the chance
to pursue career dreams can become a
reality.
Fellowship applicants must demonstrate:
• Dedication to the environment and
their field of study;
Passion and enthusiasm for their
proposed experience;
• Demonstrated promise in pursuing
their career goals; and
Ability to plan and follow through with
a professional experience.
Applicants must provide evidence of their
exceptional engagement in their field of
study, as well as their intention to pursue a
career in it.

support to undergraduate and graduate
students who have completed at least one
full semester at SUNY-ESF. Students must be
full-time, in good standing with the College,
and be returning to campus for at least one

Amount of Support
