Waynflete School and Chewonki Semester School are excited to offer Sustainable Ocean Studies, a 23-day blend of field science and adventure focused on the health of the Gulf of Maine.
Open to students entering 10th, 11th, and 12th grades, Sustainable Ocean Studies is a dynamic interdisciplinary, place-based and community-oriented program that draws students from both within and outside of Maine.
In addition to sea kayaking, hiking and scuba diving, participants work with a wide variety of scientists, staff from not-for profit organizations, and people who rely on the Gulf of Maine for their livelihood as they explore the coast of Maine from Casco Bay to Mount Desert Island.
To encourage applications from students from around the state of Maine, Waynflete and Chewonki are again offering high school educators the chance to nominate motivated students with an expressed interest in the health of the ocean.
If admitted to the program, educator-nominated students are awarded a $1000 scholarship and guaranteed all of the financial aid for which they qualify.
We have had great success with the educator nominated process in the past two years, and we want to encourage you to consider nominating one of your students for this year’s Sustainable Ocean Studies.
Program dates are June 27th-July 19th, 2017.
