Switzer Fellowship Program

Switzer Fellowship Program
Applications Due January 10, 2013

The goal of the Switzer Environmental Fellowship Program is to support highly talented graduate students in New England and California whose studies are directed toward improving environmental quality and who demonstrate the potential for leadership in their field.

The Switzer Environmental Fellowship Program is in its 26th year of existence. The Foundation broadly defines its interest in the environment and the means by which positive results can be achieved. Awards have been made to students pursuing environmental policy, economics, land and water conservation, public health, journalism, architecture, environmental justice, business and law as well as sciences including biology, chemistry and engineering.

The Fellowship provides a one-year $15,000 cash award for graduate study as well as networking and leadership support to awardees. Switzer Fellows are highly talented professionals who have the ability, determination and integrity to effect positive change as environmental leaders in the 21st century.

Only the most active, committed and focused individuals will compete successfully to join the Switzer Fellowship Network of over 500 Fellows selected since 1986. The Foundation seeks to select a diversity of students from different schools, programs, disciplines and career tracks in each Fellowship class. Diverse backgrounds and perspectives add value to the Fellowship Network by fostering learning and collaboration across disciplines and geography.
