EPA Grants for Undergrads

Here is an interesting opportunities that EPA Associate Assistant Administrator for Research and Development Michael Brown '86 passed along. He'll be here October 12, so if you have an interest in this and would like to talk to him about it let me know.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, as part of our Greater Research Opportunities program, is offering Undergraduate Fellowships for bachelor level students in environmental fields of study. The deadline for receipt of pre-applications is November 29, 2006. Subject to availability of funding, the Agency plans to award approximately 15 new fellowships by July 20, 2007. Eligible students will receive support for their junior and senior years of undergraduate study and for an internship at an EPA facility during the summer between their junior and senior years. The fellowship provides up to $17,000 per year of academic support and up to $7,500 of internship support for a three-month summer period. For more information, go to
