Alfred Russel Wallace Grants for Outstanding Field Ecologists
Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities, who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research programmes. Research is supported by students who join the programme, to strengthen their CV or resume, gain course credit, or collect data for a dissertation or thesis. Alternatively if you are a medical student (or intending to go to medical school) you can gain experience in expedition medicine in one of the expedition medicine experiential courses.
There is a fee for participation. However, Operation Wallacea offers Alfred Russel Wallace Grants, aimed at students looking to join one of the biodiversity teams working in remote parts of the world in the summer. This grant is available for any students enrolled as an undergraduate at a US academic institution and booked on to any Opwall summer project.
