Because of the immersive nature of our program, Environmental Conservation students are not eligible for campus assistantships, but they can apply for paid hourly work positions on campus. We encourage all students to apply for our Environmental Conservation tuition assistance, and to seek additional sources of grants, scholarships or loans. Please contact us with any questions you have about the program costs.
