Evergreen Sustainability Fellowship
Evergreen graduate students who are interested in environmental sustainability issues and want to accomplish a sustainability-related project or research are invited to apply for an Evergreen Sustainability Fellowship. In 2013, multiple awards ranging from $2500-$3333 are available to fund projects during the Spring or Summer quarter of 2013. This award is given as a one-time grant that is disbursed through financial aid and is to be used toward tuition and expenses incurred for working on the project.
Project eligibility varies by program, as follows:
MPA students: Capstone projects. A research-oriented project must include a service or work component.
MES Students: Students who want to assist with a sustainability project or research are encouraged to apply. A research-oriented project must include a service or work component that will improve environmental sustainability efforts either on- or off-campus. For on-campus projects, please consult the Office of Sustainability (867-6913 or firstname.lastname@example.org) regarding possible projects. Students may earn up to four internship credits for this project. Students who submit a project with their employer must propose a project outside of their job duties.
MIT Students: Master’s Project including relevant research which is on a social and/or environmental aspect of sustainability and its applications to the classroom and/or student taught a curriculum unit during fall student teaching on a sustainability issue based on research which preferably included an action component.
At the end of the applicable quarter, the student must provide a 3-5 page written project summary report which “tells the story” of the project to (1) the 2013 Sustainability Fellowship contact person (Scott Morgan, email@example.com) and (2) the Office of Advancement (Megan Oczkewicz at firstname.lastname@example.org).
