Field School Applications for summer 2018 now available

By Upstate Institute on February 12, 2018

The Upstate Institute is currently accepting applications from current Colgate students who are interested in conducting research with a local organization through the Upstate Institute Summer Field School. The Field School partners students with not-for-profit, community, or municipal organizations to conduct research projects that have a positive social, economic, cultural or environmental impact on the Upstate region. Through a Field School Fellowship, students strengthen their skills while building the capacity of the community organization with which they are working. The Field School allows students to develop a deeper understanding of the issues facing Upstate New York and a stronger appreciation for what the region has to offer. Applications for students interested in applying to be a Fellow for the summer of 2018, as well as for community organizations interested in proposing a research project, are available on the Field School page of our website.
