Register here to join the info session! With our final application deadline coming up on April 13th, this info session will be a chance for you to learn more about the program and application process, and to ask me any questions you may have. I look forward to seeing you then! (If you can’t make the info session but would still like to see it, please reply in Handshake or email me to let me know; I will happily send you a recording of the session afterwards. Thanks!)
Before or after (or maybe even during) the info session, I also very much encourage you to:
· Explore our Info Center if you haven’t already, which contains answers to FAQs about our program, informational webinars, and more.
· If you have any additional questions, please email your questions to me any time email@example.com. I’ll be sure to get back to you promptly.
· Apply here by our final deadline this year (Monday April 13th) to join our 2020 cohort (or 2021 cohort for ‘early admissions’ or deferral applicants) in Baltimore, DC, or Dallas. The application only takes about 20-30 minutes to complete!
I hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy in this challenging time, Ursula. I hope to see you on Wednesday!

I just wanted to check in with you all and see how you are doing since leaving campus (for most of you)? These are unprecedented days like we’ve never seen before. For most of us, these days and weeks ahead will bring so much uncertainty. It’s a place that most of us try to avoid, but today, its unavoidable. That said, there is some certainty you can count on, and that’s the fact that your Social Impact and Education Advisor is here to work with you when you’re ready to move forward. Feel free to make a Zoom Appointment with me through Handshake.
That said, you can also think about how you can use your time close to home to be volunteering in the community. Here in Addison County we have been connected with several community and county-wide resources allowing us to volunteer our time: grocery store and pharmacy pick-ups; baking and cooking meals for the church community supper; delivering Meals-on-Wheels; calling elderly folks for socializing on the phone.
I’ll be posting some articles in the next week which might be of interest from areas that I cover. Meanwhile, don’t forget to keep checking Handshake for great opportunities.
Use this week, if you can, to take some time to breathe deep and relax before classes begin again remotely. I’ll look forward to ‘seeing’ you soon via Zoom.
As the nation’s leading public lands conservation and advocacy organization, The Wilderness Society (TWS) is uniting people to protect America’s wild places. They recognize and employ maps as one of their best tools to convey complex stories and connect the values and perspectives of TWS and partners across urban and rural landscapes. Their maps and graphics guide the implementation of strategic priorities and frequently and meaningfully impact conservation outcomes.
They are looking for a curious and creative Cartography Intern to join their award-winning cartographic program for the summer. The Cartography Intern will work closely with their cartographic designer, Marty Schnure (Midd Geography ’10.5), to help create compelling maps that connect people with conservation issues nationwide.
The planned location of this internship is The Wilderness Society’s office in downtown Seattle, Washington. However, as news continues to reveal the depth of the public health emergency facing the nation as COVID-19 spreads, The Wilderness Society has chosen to close all of our offices and convert to remote work until further notice. At the time of this writing, we do not know whether our offices will be open this summer. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it develops. Applicants should be prepared for the possibility that they will need to work from an alternative location, including the Middlebury Geography Department (if it is open for student workers during the summer), or from a remote location. We appreciate your patience and flexibility.
Compensation and Duration
This internship is based on a schedule of 35 hours per week, Monday through Friday, for 10 weeks. Start and end dates are negotiable between early June and late August. A stipend of $4,000 is available. Additional funds may be available to cover cost of living expenses in the Seattle area should you relocate there for the internship.
Interested in more information about how to apply as a Middlebury College undergraduate student? Please read THIS ATTACHMENT with instructions on how to apply. Please direct questions about this internship to Bill Hegman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
