Gibbs House offers resident fellowship

Feb. 5, 2007

KALAMAZOO--The Gibbs House for Environmental Research and Education, a program of Western Michigan University's Environmental Institute, is accepting applications through Friday, Feb. 16, for 2007-08 resident fellows.

WMU undergraduate students from all disciplines are invited to apply for the one-year fellowship that provides free housing in WMU's historic Gibbs House in exchange for a project or study that increases the sustainability of the house or property. Selected students will engage in community outreach and may earn academic credit for their work.

Resident fellows are chosen based on academic merit, experience in the chosen field of study, and ability to work independently.

All application packets must be received by the deadline, complete with an application form, resume, transcript or unofficial facsimile, three academic or professional references, and an abstract of a proposed study. Application forms are available online at www.wmich.edu/env/gibbshouse.

The Gibbs House provides WMU undergraduate students a setting in which to generate pragmatic solutions to Kalamazoo's environmental challenges, educate the academic and local community, and exemplify a sustainable and regenerative lifestyle.

For more information, visit the Gibbs House online or contact Danielle Hunt, program coordinator at d2hunt@wmich.edu.
