Applications for PCC Interdisciplinary Fellowships are available

A new graduate fellowship opportunity to begin between winter 2018 and winter 2019 is being offered to support one or more students with a clear passion for working across academic boundaries on projects grounded in climate science. The application includes a written proposal for research that is not currently defined as the students’ dissertation research, and that has the support of faculty/staff in two different units (academic departments, research units, etc.). The goal of this opportunity is to build collaboration across disciplines while addressing a proposed climate related research, communication, data driven etc. goal. We have a total of 9 months (3 quarters) of support for this opportunity, and proposals asking for 3, 6 or 9 months of support will be considered. We will also entertain proposals for joint projects that include two graduate students that are matriculated in different departments. These funds will only be awarded if the applicant(s) and the proposed project(s) and collaborations clearly meet the goals and criteria described in the announcement. The application period will end October 15, 2017 and awards to be made by December 2017. This fellowship opportunity will be made available again in 2018.
