Are you a college student or recent grad interested in gaining exposure to PEC's work in the Piedmont? Learn more about this hands-on program and how you can get involved.
The PEC Fellowship program is much more than an internship! The seven week program is designed to provide college students and recent graduates with comprehensive exposure to PEC's work in the Piedmont region and Virginia.
Fellows will experience a hands-on approach to learning about PEC through field-trips, classroom discussions, and individual practicum projects. Wherever possible, classroom lessons are followed with practical applications and field trips. During the 2011 program, students heard from over 60 different speakers and went on countless field trips to sites around the Piedmont to learn more about the topics covered in the classroom.
PEC is pleased to provide accepted 2012 Fellows assistance with the following:
Academic Session: June 11 - July 6, 2012
The first four weeks of the program are focused on academic activities including orientation, classroom instruction from PEC staff, field trips, guest lectures, assigned readings and more.
Individual Practicum Session: July 9 - July 27, 2012
The final three weeks of the program allow the Fellows to develop and use their new skills to complete an individual practicum project of personal interest, yet related to PEC's mission. Fellows will complete the practicum with the assistance of a mentor from PEC or a partnering organization.
