LRES Ph.D. Fellowship Awards

LRES offers an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Ecology & Environmental Sciences and to encourage Ph.D. applications, we offer competitive Graduate Assisstantship stipends for outstanding Ph.D. students. The award totals $30,000 to cover tuition, fees, union, and a stipend to fund their first year of Ph.D. graduate education in Land Resources & Environmental Sciences, with the expectation that grant funds and GTA resources would be pursued and students supported through more broadly leveraged funds over time.

To qualify, your application letter must clearly state your future advisor and include a note from the faculty member committing to serve as your major advisor. Please apply using the APPLY NOW button on this page by December 31st. Our Graduate Review committee will assess applications each January for admission the following Fall.
