The following information is for college-aged young adults looking to get involved in Fall Line South. High school students and their parents should visit our main application page for information on how to apply to this summer’s program.
In the spirit of William Bartram — naturalist, writer, artist, and explorer — Fall Line South Field Institute seeks highly motivated, capable college-aged leaders eager to engage with the natural world and be a role model for your fellow travelers for our Bartram Fellowships.
As a Bartram Fellow, you will be a fully integrated member of our community during the course, participating in all of the classes and activities offered (at a deeply discounted rate). In addition, you will be given leadership responsibilities which will include, but are not limited to:
- Assisting instructors when needed with course preparation and follow-up;
- Helping oversee prep and cooking of meals, as well as camp set-up and break-down;
- Keeping track of daily student task schedule and motivating fellow students;
- Maintaining a healthy community environment through a positive attitude.
We seek applications from college-aged (18-23 year old) young adults who have an active interest in interdisciplinary studies, the outdoors, and place-based learning and who want to work closely with a team of highly-qualified instructors to take the next step in their self-directed education. Bartram Fellows will have the opportunity to assist instructors whose graduate work includes art, creative writing, cultural geography, ecology, environmental studies, and philosophy, gaining valuable insights into potential educational and career paths. (Not to mention that an experience like this looks great on a resume!)
