Apply today for inaugural Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences Graduate Fellowship
The natural resources and environmental sciences secondary major is accepting applications for the new NRES Graduate Fellowship. This fellowship recognizes students with exceptional teaching and/or research achievements who seek additional experience in interdisciplinary teaching and research mentoring. The application deadline for fall 2020 fellows is May 1.
Doctoral students in any discipline conducting research in the general domains of natural resource management, environmental sciences, human-environment interactions, or sustainability science are encouraged to apply. Preferred applicants have completed preliminary exams, been admitted to candidacy, and are making excellent progress toward doctoral degree completion. Recipients will be selected by members of the NRES Governing Board. Awards will be made without restriction to race, gender, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability and financial aid or other awards.
Fellows will receive an award of $1,500 for mentoring research by a multidisciplinary team of senior undergraduates enrolled in the NRES capstone class — BAE/DAS/GENAG 582 — during the semester that the fellowship is awarded. Recipients are also eligible to apply for a $500 NRES Travel Award during the academic year in which the fellowship is awarded.
Interested students should visit the NRES website for detailed application instructions and to review additional NRES fellow requirements.
