The National Park Service is one of the world's premier public land management agencies. The agency, within the Department of the Interior, maintains a headquarters office in Washington D.C. and Regional Offices around the US. With 84 million acres of National Park land, in 397 Park Units, our nation’s rich natural and cultural heritage is preserved and protected for current and future generations. This fellowship gives two students, each year, the opportunity to develop video stories of our National Parks.
