The National Park Service and the UW College of the Environment are pleased to announce the 2013 George Melendez Wright Climate Change Youth Initiative.
This program provides opportunities for young people to work on diverse issues related to climate change and its effects in national parks. The opportunities take two forms – competitive fellowships awarded to advanced graduate students (Masters and Doctorate levels) to support their independent research, and paid internships in which undergraduate or beginning graduate students work for approximately 12 weeks on projects in research, interpretation, park operations, policy development, or other fields.
Washington Sea Grant is currently seeking applications for the following fellowships. Please visit http://wsg.washington.edu/education/index.html for more information about each fellowship, and contact Nancy Reichley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-685-8302 with questions.
2014 Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship: This fellowship provides eligible graduate students a one-year work experience on the staff of the U.S. Congress or with a Federal agency dealing with marine issues.

If you have a passion for cleantech, the smarts to play in the emerging green economy, and the desire to leverage your background to make an impact, the UW Environmental Innovation Challenge can provide just the platform (and the funding!) you’ve been looking for.
HOW IT WORKS
Interdisciplinary student teams define a cleantech problem, design and develop a solution, and work together to produce both a prototype (proof of concept or computer simulation) and a 5 to 7-page business summary that outlines the market opportunity.
The Office of Merit Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards is offering a few more fall sessions on searching for scholarships, writing personal statements, writing CVs/resumes, and getting great recommendations. These sessions are for undergrad students in all fields who might be interested in learning more about searching and applying for scholarships of all kinds and/or working on graduate admission applications.
Freshman Scholarship 101: Getting Started in the Search for Scholarships
Specifically designed for freshmen and sophomores, this introductory workshop provides students with information to begin the scholarship search and to develop a competitive edge for merit-based scholarships.
Potential funding opportunity for talented undergraduates:
Financial Support for Undergraduate Studies in Environmental Sciences is
available from the National Center for Environmental Research, a unit of the
EPA Office of Research and Development, which is seeking applications for
its Greater Research Opportunities (GRO) Fellowships For Undergraduate
Environmental Study. This fellowship program forms part of efforts to ensure
that the United States meets its current and projected human resource needs
in the environmental science, engineering, and policy fields.
