GCeCS Capstone Opportunities
Northwest Climate Science Center Offering GCeCS Capstone Opportunity
Posted January 26, 2017
2017-2018: A new graduate fellowship opportunity to begin between winter 2017 and winter 2018 was offered to support one or more students with a clear passion for working across academic boundaries on projects grounded in climate science broadly defined. The application included a written proposal for research that was not currently defined as the students’ dissertation research, and that had 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. Application period has now ended, awards to be made by December 2016. This fellowship opportunity will be made available again in 2017.
2016-2017: Three 9-month fellowships were awarded to incoming students with strong science backgrounds and an interest in climate science. These fellowships are offered by the home departments during the recruitment process. Please welcome Ethan Campbell (Oceanography) and Lydia Tierney (Atmospheric Sciences) in fall 2016, and Andrew Hoffmann (ESS) in fall 2017.
