Behavioral Ecology of African Mammals (ZOL 490) through MSU
This intensive 3-week summer field course focuses on the behavioral ecology of African mammals in their natural habitat. This course will offer students a unique opportunity to learn about the cultures of Kenya particularly the indigenous Maasai who inhabit the areas surrounding the Mara. The BEAM course was started by Dr. Kay Holekamp in 1999 and has been a success since then. This is an MSU course but students from all universities are welcome. Applications for the Summer are due in January. Please contact me if you would like more info!
US Fulbright Program
This is an AMAZING opportunity for college grads interested in being a “US cultural ambassador.” You get paid to do independent scholarly research or teach English abroad for 1 year in a foreign country. It’s truly a transformative experience that I can’t promote enough! To get started, check your home institution for due dates and internal applications process.
