2022 Field Stations Workshop Application

WII IS CURRENTLY ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2022 FIELD STATIONS PROGRAM IN THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES

The Wright-Ingraham Institute cordially invites you to apply to our upcoming 2022 summer Field Stations workshop. All participants admitted to the program will be awarded a full tuition and accommodation scholarship by the Wright-Ingraham Institute.

Key Requirements and Considerations

Participants are asked to pay a $300 non-refundable fee to secure their place following acceptance to the program. Additionally, participants will be required to cover their own travel costs to and from Albuquerque, New Mexico (the start and end point of the Field Stations workshop). Indigenous participants, or others in need that can demonstrate financial hardship, may apply for additional support. Please see our BIPOC scholarship guidelines or us directly at fieldstations@wright-ingraham.org to discuss options.

A small group, of ten or less, is the foundation of the WII Field Stations experience. This model, we call it a pod, maximizes time spent in open spaces, which greatly reduces many of the risks associated with the transmission of Covid-19. Participants should be aware, however, that there is also substantial time spent traveling together in a van on a daily basis, and in some instances, we will be working indoors. Our accommodations also require room sharing. In these contexts, we will not be socially distanced. We also require all participants, without exception, to provide proof of vaccination, acknowledge our safety protocols, and sign our liability waiver upon acceptance to the program. Obtaining private travel insurance is also a requirement and an obligation that falls to the participant.

Candidates must complete and submit their applications in full by due by 11:59 p.m. MT on March 8, 2022.

In addition, please email the following supporting documents as a single PDF (max. 12 pages) to fieldstations@wright-ingraham.org

Selection Criteria

Your application will be complete when we receive all requested documents. The selection of participants will be based on the applicant’s statement of interest and ability to derive value from this program. WII strives to select a wide range of exceptional participants across race, gender, age and experience, and differently abled contributors that will benefit from the program.

The overriding criteria for evaluating Field Stations applicants is the likelihood of advancing emerging leaders in their fields, especially those engaged in community-building in fields related to climate-change related efforts.

Field Stations programming focuses on building integrated knowledge at the nexus of creative design, planning, policy, and socio-environmental research and application, and is targeted towards early career professionals or those at a high academic level.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at fieldstations@wright-ingraham.org if you have any questions.

A BIPOC Scholarship is also available for those applicants who identify as BIPOC, have financial need, and require additional support to attend the program.

Best,
The Field Stations Team
