CLIMAS is now accepting applications for the Climate & Society Graduate Fellows Program for funding between January-December 2016. 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 climate research and decision making. Up to four fellowships in the amount of $5,000 each are awarded annually. The Climate & Society Fellows Program is supported by the University of Arizona Office of Research and Development, the Climate Assessment for the Southwest, and the International Research and Applications Program.
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.
Applications for the 2016 fellowship are due on Thursday, October 29, 2015 by 5pm. Please contact Gigi Owen (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any further questions.
