The Udall Foundation is accepting applications for the 2009 Environmental Public Policy & Conflict Resolution Dissertation Fellowship. View the application in .PDF form. This is for qualified Ph.D. students.
The Udall Foundation awards two one-year fellowships of up to $24,000 to doctoral candidates whose research concerns U.S. environmental public policy and/or environmental conflict resolution, and who are entering their final year of writing the dissertation. Dissertation Fellowships are intended to cover both academic and living expenses from July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2010. The application deadline is February 20, 2009.
For additional information about the Dissertation Fellowship, including eligibility, program conditions, and biographies of recent fellows, visit the Udall website.
Previously funded fields of study include geography; marine sciences; environmental anthropology; political science; economics; government; environmental science, policy and management; ecology; environmental justice; regional planning; natural resource policy; and environmental analysis and design. Interdisciplinary projects are particularly welcome.
While scholarly excellence is of prime importance in selection of fellows, the Foundation is also seeking to identify individuals who have a demonstrated commitment to environmental public policy and/or environmental conflict resolution, and who have the potential to make a significant impact in the real world.
