The Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (SW CASC) is happy to announce the 2020-2021 SW CASC Natural Resources Workforce Development (NRWD) Fellowship. I have attached both the flyer, and the full request. Applications are due on March 17th. The fellowship is open to graduate students at any of the seven SW CASC consortium institutions, doing research related to the science theme for this year: management in the aftermath of landscape-scale disturbances.
Who is eligible to apply?
The program is for currently enrolled graduate students in research-based thesis or dissertation-granting programs at the seven SW CASC consortium institutions. One applicant from each institution will be selected to take part in the 2020-21 fellowship cohort. The Fellowship will begin in October 2020 and extend through October 2021. Funding includes a stipend of $5,000 (disbursed 50% at beginning and 50% at completion), with an additional travel allowance of $1,000 for travel to each meeting (October 2020 and October 2021) to be held at Utah State University, Logan, Utah. Each of the successful applicants (2) at The University of Arizona will also receive one full year of graduate tuition.
We encourage broad participation from students who identify with groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in the government and academic workforce. We welcome applicants from various cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds with unique lived experiences, skills and interests, including those that may have had fewer opportunities in natural resource management.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
