Host an International ELAW Fellow

Every year, ELAW brings committed environmental advocates to Eugene to hone skills they need to protect communities and the environment. These Fellows collaborate with ELAW’s team, learn from local environmental advocates, and take English classes at the University of Oregon’s American English Institute.

During evenings and weekends, ELAW Fellows explore Oregon and connect with the community. That’s where we need your help!

You can host ELAW Fellows — for a meal, a day trip to the coast or Cascades, or a short home stay.
