Climate-related changes are affecting fuel and water supplies, agriculture, air quality, and nearly every other facet of human life across the globe.

The Marshall Weinberg Population, Development, and Climate Change Fellows Program, administered jointly by the Population Studies Center and the School of Natural Resources and Environment, will provide funding support for students enrolled in a PhD program who are considering, or already engaged in, research at the intersection of climate change, demography, and development.

We seek highly motivated, pre-candidate applicants from all disciplines for this exciting opportunity. Awards for research activities will range up to $7,500. Proposed activities must integrate all three substantive areas and have an international component.

Applications due Monday, February 25, 2013.
