Are you an undergraduate, graduate student or recent graduate interested in learning more about a career in environmental conservation? If so, you should consider applying for the 9th Annual Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) Fellowship Program, based in Warrenton, Virginia! Twelve students will be selected for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend a summer in the Virginia Piedmont, while studying with seasoned professionals in land conservation, land use planning, agriculture, habitat and more.

The highly acclaimed PEC Fellowship is much more than an internship. For the first four weeks, the program combines classroom discussions, field trips, and hands-on activities to give participants a comprehensive understanding of the work that PEC does. For the final three weeks, the fellows work on a collaborative practicum, focused on their interests as well as a particular aspect of PEC’s work in the Piedmont.

Through this personalized experience, participants gain the practical knowledge and skills necessary to successfully transition into careers in conservation, urban planning, agriculture, historic preservation, public policy, and other related fields. In addition to providing fellows with local housing, PEC covers all program-related expenses and provides a stipend to cover living expenses.
