The College of the Environment (CoEnv) supports undergraduate, Masters, and PhD students in furthering their careers, and in particular in connecting students to networking opportunities afforded by the presentation of their original work in meeting venues.

Maximums of $500 for North American travel and $750 for international travel; one per student per degree career; we anticipate making about 15 awards annually.
The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards will be offering upcoming sessions for undergraduates (and alumni) on scholarships for graduate study in the UK, searching for scholarships generally, writing personal statements, writing CVs/resumes, and getting great recommendations.
