Do you want to have a lasting impact on your campus and in the world? Join our student movement to address global poverty through social entrepreneurship. We are currently located on 28 U.S. college campuses and are now accepting applications to expand.
One year ago, Carli and Mallory, sophomores at Indiana University, applied to start a Nourish Chapter. Already this year, IU has earned over $2,000, in part through their Chipotle Burrito Sale Venture.
Nourish Chapters run small businesses on-campus during the school year, then travel and invest these funds in communities abroad over the summer. Join us - you too can make a lasting impact on extreme poverty!
Deadline is Friday, April 5.

Come join us in Brazil this summer!
We are pleased to announce the UMD Brazil Abroad 2013 program
Brazilian Amazon: Environmental Conservation and Indigenous Peoples
July 20-August 10 2013
Applications Due March 24, 2013
Please note, you need to contact Soren Peterson firstname.lastname@example.org directly to complete an application.
Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply
No prerequisites required
Please feel free to ask questions of any of your instructors:
The Program. This course introduces students to the Kayapó, one of the indigenous peoples of Amazonia, as well as tropical forest ecology and the urbanization and development of Amazonia.
Conservation and Indigenous Peoples. The Kayapo have worked in partnership with Conservation International since 1992 in protecting their lands -- nearly pristine tropical rain forest that comprises an area about 12 times the size of Yellowstone. The area contains high endemism and numerous threatened species, including the blue macaw and the river otter. Besides the anthropologists, our course is led by two tropical forest ecologists: 1) Barbara Zimmerman, who worked with CI for a number of years and founded the Kayapo program; Barbara now works with the International Conservation Fund of Canada (ICFC); and 2) Adriano Jerozolimski (Pingo), a zoologist and tropical forest ecologist who specializes in land tortoises and who is the liason to the Kayapo indigenous association, AFP. Half of the course takes place in an ecological research station, founded by CI, where the forest ecologists and three Kayapo instructors work with the students on topics such as floral-faunal interactions. The impacts of hunting on biodiversity are followed by Pingo and the well-known forest ecologist Carlos Peres, and so this will be carefully reviewed and discussed. In this portion of the course students sleep in tents or in a dormitory-like room in a seminar house. Meals are provided.
Village Life. The course also takes place in the indigenous village under the leadership of anthropologist Laura Zanotti, who has spent more than a total of 20 months among the Kayapo and is the author of several publications. She is typically joined by a companion instructor from a Brazilian university. This portion of the course addresses such subject matter as mixed economies, agricultural practices, space and identity, body art and body decoration, place-making practices, ceremonial and recreational activities, foraging, hunting and fishing. Most students spend half of the visit in the village and half in the research station, but some exceptions to this may be accommodated. In the village, students live in a group house and visit Kayapo homes, gardens, and Men's House.
Coordination. The course is coordinated by the University of Maryland and administered by Janet Chernela, an anthropologist with specialization in the Brazilian Amazon. An orientation to the 6-credit course begins in Maryland and will take place at a time to be announced. Overview of the course continues in Brazil in the famed rubber-boom city of Belem, before students and instructors embark for the rainforest.
Logistics. The course takes place over three weeks, with two of them in the Kayapo territories. It is nearly impossible to gain access to indigenous villages in Brazil and we therefore go through an arduous process of obtaining authorizations for each person. To accomplish this we must ask each of you to obtain a tourist visa and a medical report. These will be described in more detail as we approach the departure.
The trip is an extraordinary experience. I am happy to provide names of students to you if you wish.
Thank you for your interest. We all look forward to meeting, Janet Chernela

Adelphi University 2013 Archaeological and Ethnographic Field School Opportunities
The Adelphi University Department of Anthropology welcomes applications from graduate and undergraduate students interested in Anthropology or related disciplines to join one of four 2013 archaeological and ethnographic field school opportunities in Alaska, Peru, and Crete. Project dates and brief summaries are provided below including two new course offerings in Alaska and Peru.
Email the program director or visit our website for additional information on these and other programs.
Adelphi in Alaska I
Field and Lab Techniques in Archaeology, Trapper Creek, Alaska
ANT 333.001 (June 4–June 30, 2013)
Adelphi in Alaska II – NEW!
Field and Lab Techniques in Archaeology, Tanana Valley, Alaska
ANT 733.001 (July 10-July 30, 2013)
For both Alaska programs, students will participate in an ongoing research program, experience unspoiled Alaska wilderness, acquire important technological skills using state-of-the-art field based research technologies, and learn the fundamentals of archaeological field methods including excavation and survey. Backcountry hiking and remote camping are required. A love of dirt is mandatory.
Adelphi in Peru: People and Cultures of Peru-An Exploration of Humans and the Environment-NEW!
ANT 390 (July 1-21, 2013)
This course travels from the picturesque peaks of Peru’s Andes Mountains and the lost city of Machu Picchu to its lowland Amazon rainforests, the last place where uncontacted humans live outside of civilization. Students will experience ancient indigenous rituals, hunt exotic medicinal plants in the Amazon rainforest, and work with conservation projects for rare and endangered animals. Peru’s diverse cultures are explored from historic to modern perspectives, from archeological ruins of past civilizations to the modern-day realities of Peruvian indigenous and Western cultures. Peru’’s beautiful and diverse natural environments will take a front seat as we explore how humans interact with and impact the environment of Peru’s lowland rainforests and mountain highlands.
