The Gift of Education

Education is a gift that keeps giving. It is essential to the makings of capable, fulfilled, and giving individuals. Our field schools in the social and natural sciences offer an education in both the subject and of the self. They require students to engage in physical work, in an intensive and immersive fashion. At our programs, students often live in remote areas and work in small teams for extensive periods of time, creating collaborative communities of learners. Students develop intellectual capacity, as well as physical and emotional resiliency. They become researchers, team members, and global citizens. The IFR strives to make our programs available to everyone, regardless of financial barriers. We welcome you to join us in our mission by making field school education accessible and attainable to students of all backgrounds and income levels.
