I know school hasn’t officially started yet, but just wanted to let everyone know that the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship application is now open. This scholarship was created by the US Department of State to increase access to study or internships abroad for students of high financial need. To be eligible for this award, students must be receiving a Pell grant as part of their financial aid package at the time they apply.

If you are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. after you graduate from the UW, the McNair Scholar’s Program can help you achieve this goal!
The McNair Scholars Program, which prepares students for doctoral study, is a federal TRiO program funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The McNair Scholars Program offers many benefits. McNair Scholars receive academic and personal support from advisers and mentors, a research stipend to complete an original research project, assistance in applying to graduate schools, funding to travel to research conferences and to visit graduate schools, and resources to help prepare for the GRE, among many other benefits.
The College has formalized its support for student-led, diversity-oriented meetings and I would love your help getting the word out to your students. Similar to the Student Travel and Meeting Fund, students (individually or as an organization) can apply for up to $1500 in support of meetings attended by CoEnv students where the central goals of the meeting include linking science to policy or real-world application, and advancing diversity and inclusion within the College, the University and relevant STEM fields.
