8. ConE 10K Graduate Student Fellowship on the Environment

Event Type(s): Other

Solving society's environmental problems is an inherently interdisciplinary effort, requiring both innovation within disciplines and collaboration across them. The Council for the Environment will award a 10K Green Fellowship for the Environment to be shared by two currently supported UMCP graduate students whose research is relevant to the environment in a broad sense. This award is not intended to replace current student support, but rather to encourage broader thinking about environmental problems both here and abroad. A major goal of this award is to foster collaboration across disciplines relevant to environmental problems. It is intended that this fellowship be shared jointly between a team of two students, one each from two different disciplines. Thus, students will usually be from different colleges as well as different departments.

Please submit all materials in one pdf to Cathy Stephens ( csteph5@umd.edu) no later than close of business, December 1, 2015.
