Bullitt Environmental Fellowship
Deadline: April 4, 2011
The Bullitt Environmental Fellowship is a two-year, $50,000/year fellowship for graduate students interested in pursuing leadership positions within the environmental field.
Applicants do not need to be in environmental studies; past awardees have come from varied academic disciplines, including Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, Urban Design & Planning, and Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences.
In honor of Priscilla Bullitt Collins, the Bullitt Environmental Fellowship is offered to an outstanding, environmentally knowledgeable graduate student from a community under-represented in the environmental movement, who has demonstrated exceptional capacity for leadership as well as scholarship.
The Foundation encourages applications from a broad diversity of students, with a particular emphasis on students of color and others who have overcome discrimination or other significant hardships.
Eligible applicants must first secure a recommendation from a faculty member. Only faculty recommended applications will be considered.
Eligible applicants will be:
- Currently enrolled in a graduate candidate program, not restricted to environmental studies*;
- Prepared to demonstrate a strong desire and capacity for leadership; and
- Seeking leadership opportunities to make substantial contributions to the environmental field.
*Note: Applicants must be enrolled in good standing in a master’s program or higher at the time of the application deadline. PhD students nearing completion of the dissertation may use the fellowship for postdoctoral work.
