Supporting the Environment Leaders of the Future

In May 2014, OceanWork founder Tory Read was honored to serve as an interviewer for California finalists in the annual Switzer Environmental Fellowship Program. The program supports talented graduate students in New England and California whose studies are focused on improving environmental quality and who demonstrate clear leadership potential in their field. Now in its 27th year, the Switzer Environmental Fellowship provides a combination of funding for graduate study, trainings to help develop leadership skills and ongoing participation in the Switzer Fellowship Network. The Switzer Foundation’s primary interest is in developing environmental leaders for the 21st century who have the ability, determination and integrity to effect positive change.
