At-large graduate fellowship applications due

Start Date/Time: Wednesday, September 02, 2009, 5:00 PM
Location: PCC Office; Box 355351

Graduate student fellowships are an important part of the PCC, and are awarded to highly qualified students interested or involved in interdisciplinary climate research. Traditionally, fellowships are awarded to first-year students in one of the PCC core departments, and more recently to students outside the core departments.

We are able to award one nine-month at-large fellowship for the academic year 2009/2010. The candidate must be an incoming student admitted to a degree-granting graduate department at the UW.

To make this available fall quarter, we need nominations AND student applications ASAP, and no later than 2 September 2009, for decision by 15 September 2009.

Application materials must be submitted to the PCC office, with recommendation from a potential advisor, most often from the student's home department, by September 2, 2009.

The application must include:

1. A copy of the application submitted to the home department.

2. Statement from the applicant describing their research area, how they see the PCC relating to their career/research interests, and affirm that they plan to fulfill the requirements of the climate certificate which is currently being implemented. Visit the academics section of the PCC website ( for more information.

3. Recommendation from a potential faculty advisor.

All PCC Fellowship Awardees are expected to enroll in the graduate climate certificate and participate in PCC sponsored activities.
