A group of 20 undergraduate students from different universities of the United States of America (USA) arrived Bhutan on 4th June, 2013, to attend a six week the SFS-UWICE (The School for Field Studies-the Ugyen Wangchuck Institute for Conservation and Environment) Summer Program 2013. In Bhutan the students will undertake an interdisciplinary field based course on Eastern Himalayan Forests, Watersheds and Rural Livelihoods.

SFS is a not-for-profit corporation based at Massachusetts in the USA. SFS organizes field-based environmental education and research programs for undergraduate students to develop environmentally literate citizens, and to promote sustainability of the world’s natural resources.

The SFS-Bhutan Summer Program in Bhutan was initiated by the Ugyen Wangchuck Institute for Conservation and Environment (UWICE) in partnership with SFS in 2010. Within the past four years, about 72 American students have participated in this program.
