Haub School Scholarships

Erivan Haub Scholarship for Yellowstone Field Studies

The Erivan Haub Scholarship supports students who participate in the annual Yellowstone Field Course (YFC), delivered by faculty from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Wyoming. Each year, one or two UW upper-division undergraduate and/or graduate students are admitted to the YFC to spend 30 days in Yellowstone National Park exploring the ecological, cultural, and geological dimensions of the region. Applications for funding are due February 15. At the discretion of the associate director, this scholarship may also be awarded to support relevant environmental coursework, field learning, or conference/internship travel for Haub School students on an ad hoc basis.

Haub Student Research and Creative Activities Grant

This grant, offered three times each year, is available to undergraduate and graduate students to support student research or creative activities related to the environment or natural resources. Grants are competitive and awarded based on merit of application and demonstration of academic aptitude. One or more students will be selected for awards each semester, depending on strength of applications and funding availability. All current UW students engaged in ENR related work will be considered. The award amounts to up to $1,000 per student. Recurring deadlines are November 15, February 15, and May 1 annually.
