Mel Fellowship Position Grants

​​The Maryland Forestry Foundation is calling for applications to fill four (4) Mel Fellowship positions for the period from October 1, 2021 - July 31, 2022.

​​Made possible by a grant from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, the Mel Fellowship program is intended to encourage students to pursue careers in Natural Resources and to help them enroll in a Natural Resources-related field of study. The responsibilities of the Fellowship are listed in Appendix A and B of the application, with the main one being to act as an ambassador of either the Natural Resources Careers Camp or of various Urban Forestry programs and initiatives. In travels and meetings across the state, students will be introduced to a wide range of industry, government and nonprofit professionals, making important contacts for future job searches.

​​Each Fellowship student will receive $10,000 over the 10-month Fellowship term, paid out monthly and based upon mutually agreed upon goals and deliverables.
