Applying to the Program


Please follow the general application instructions listed on the Application web page.

While most JBS programs administer a rolling admissions process, the admissions committee for the Environmental Field Semester program will begin to review applications after the application deadline of March 16, 2012. Applications will be reviewed after that date and eligible students may be contacted for an informal interview with Professor Brian Donahue. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the program, please do not hesitate to be in contact with Alyssa Grinberg, JBS program manager or Professor Brian Donahue, lead faculty member.

Supplemental Application Piece

In addition to the general JBS application, students who are interested in applying for the JBS Environmental Field Semester are required to meet with Professor Brian Donahue. Students will be contacted directly to set-up these appointments.
