The Fellowship provides a one-year $15,000 cash award, as well as access to other Switzer grant programs and career support, and membership in the Switzer Fellowship Network, a vibrant community of over 500 Switzer Fellows and environmental leaders. (We invite you to check out Switzer Network News to see live podcast interviews with some of our Fellows working on a diverse set of issues.) The Switzer Fellowship is not intended to be a research fellowship. We fund individuals doing a wide variety of environmental work (e.g., science, law, policy, engineering). Leadership potential is a more significant factor in our evaluation than the specifics of a particular graduate research project, although we are interested in novel and applied approaches to contemporary issues. Please see the Call for Applications which describes the Fellowship program and its requirements.
This year's application deadline is January 10, 2013.
If you have any questions about the Fellowship Program guidelines or the online application process, please do not hesitate to contact any of the Switzer Foundation staff. Thank you, and we look forward to receiving your students' applications!
