BREEF Fosters Environmental Stewardship in collaboration with The Island School
BREEF is now accepting applications for The Bahamas Environmental Steward Scholars (BESS) Programme. BESS is a unique year-long study and work experience programme for motivated graduating high school students between the ages of 15-18 yrs. who are interested in learning more about the environment, conservation and sustainable development. During the BESS academic year, students attend the Cape Eleuthera Island School and engage in experiential learning and research. Additionally, students gain work experience through a paid internship with a local conservation organisation. Since the programme’s inception thirty-eight BESS Scholars from schools throughout the country have participated in the programme.
The BESS experience is life changing. Through its mentorship programme, BESS alumni have traveled The Bahamas, worked with scientists, and participated in ground-breaking projects before going off to pursue further studies. BREEF encourages students thinking of a career in the environment to apply.
For more information about the programme and how to apply, contact BREEF at 327-9000, email [email protected] or click here https://breef.org/youth-education/bess-programme/. The Application deadline is February 28th, 2017. Full and partial scholarships are available.
