Environment & Society Graduate Fellows Program

The Climate Assessment for the Southwest (CLIMAS) is now accepting applications for the Environment & Society Graduate Fellows Program (previously the Climate & Society Graduate Fellows Program) for funding between January-December 2018. The fellowship provides support for currently enrolled University of Arizona graduate students from any degree-granting program, whose work is focused on the nexus of environmental research and decision making. Up to four fellowships in the amount of $4,750 each will be awarded in 2018. The Environment & Society Fellows Program is supported by the University of Arizona Office of Research, Development, & Innovation and CLIMAS.

Fellowship projects must incorporate some aspect of environmental research. Some examples include: developing informational or decision-support tools, generating outreach activities based on environmental research, examining societal impacts of environmental change, analyzing the vulnerability and resilience of people and/or ecosystems, and conducting environmental science research for specific stakeholder needs. More broadly, proposals should fall under one or more of these categories: scoping research, dissertation/thesis work, a discrete 1-year project, outreach, and/or network building. While CLIMAS conducts research mostly in the southwestern U.S., this fellowship is open to students conducting research anywhere in the world.

Please contact Gigi Owen ( with any further questions. 

Applications for the 2018 fellowship are due on Wednesday, October 18, 2017.
