The Climate & Society Graduate Fellows Program provides support for currently enrolled University of Arizona graduate students from any degree-granting program whose work is focused on the nexus of climate research and decision making. Up to four fellowships in the amount of $5,000 each are awarded annually.
Fellowship projects must incorporate some aspect of climate research. Some examples include: developing climate information or decision-support tools, using climate research in outreach activities, examining societal impacts of climate variability and climate change, analyzing the vulnerability and resilience of people and/or ecosystems, fostering the development of adaptation or mitigation strategies, and conducting climate science research for specific stakeholder needs. While CLIMAS conducts research mostly in the southwestern U.S., this fellowship is open to students conducting research anywhere in the world.
Current 2014 Fellows will present results from their research at a symposium on Friday, November 14, 2014 from 11:00am - 12:30pm in Marshall 531.
Applications for 2015 Fellows are due on Thursday, October 30, 2014 by 5:00pm.
