The University of Florida Thompson Earth Systems Institute is excited to announce the University of Florida undergraduate students participating in its 2021-22 UF TESI Environmental Leaders Fellowship. Funded by a faculty grant from the Henry David Thoreau Foundation, the Fellowship brings together students from diverse majors and backgrounds and gives them an opportunity to gain experience in environmental research, education, outreach, and civic engagement.

Seminars featuring environmental experts, mentoring from professionals in environmental fields, networking, and even a spring break field experience focused on Florida’s environmental challenges are some of the activities the cohort will get a chance to participate in.
