Graduate student fellowships are an important part of the PCC, and are awarded to highly qualified students with an interest in interdisciplinary climate science. Fellowships are made available to highly-qualified incoming students in Oceanography, Atmospheric Sciences and Earth and Space Sciences (the PCC core departments)during recruitment, and when funding permits, to students who have not yet completed 2 years of graduate school. For the 2012/2013 academic year we are able to offer TWO fellowships which will be awarded to the most qualified applicants in both core and non-core departments. Requirements are outlined below.

Enrollment Status: All applicants must be currently enrolled in a degree granting UW department. Both incoming and existing students who have completed NOT MORE than 2 years of graduate school in Physical and Chemical Oceanography, Atmospheric Sciences or Earth and Space Sciences at the UW will be considered. Existing students in their first two years of graduate study in Biological Oceanography, Civil Engineering, Biology, Forest Resources, Evans School, etc. (a non-core department) may also apply. Both existing and incoming students should be committed to participating in the Graduate Certificate in Climate Science (GCeCS) and other PCC programs.

Additional Requirements: To be considered for this fellowship, the student must have the prerequisite science and mathematics coursework to qualify for the GCeCS (see Graduate Certificate link under Academics on the PCC web site). These prerequisites are stated as an undergraduate or graduate course in ordinary differential equations with a grade of B (3.0) or above, and at least six quarters (fours semesters) of undergraduate or graduate coursework in geophysical science, physics, or chemistry, also with an average grade of B (3.0) or above.
