Who can apply? - Texas students must be currently enrolled in a degree program in an accredited undergraduate institution in Texas, and must be in good standing with their University. Candidates should demonstrate a commitment to intellectual and practical sophistication, a passion for social, political and environmental justice, and a desire to contribute to civic and community life.
How do I apply? - Students must receive the approval of their host university and submit the application appearing in the admission section of our Website by email or US postal service. Upon approval of the host insitution and receipt of the application, Texas Nature Project will contact applicants to arrange an interview. Interviews can be conducted in person or by telephone.
How do I get credit? - Texas Nature Project is working to develop partnerships with some of our state's best and most prestigious colleges and universities. Students are encouraged to approach the credit approval process for this learning experience in much the same way that they would for any other internship or study abroad experience. The number of credit hours approved for participation in Texas Nature Project may vary from institution to institution. In most cases students should be able to earn between ten and twelve hours of credit for participation in Texas Nature Project. The type of credits awarded will depend on the institution conferring the student's degree. At most institutions, credit can be approved through a process detailed in the Course Catalog or a similar document. Students will typically be required to provide their department chair or dean with a copy of Texas Nature Project curriculum materials, along with a statement detailing why the student wishes to particiapte in the one-semester nature immersion experience, how the program promotes the goals of the major, minor, or degree being sought by the student, and suggestions about which courses offered by the host institution might be substituted for credit earned through participation in Texas Nature Project. Our staff will be happy to help students work through this process.
