Climate-related changes are affecting every corner of our global community. These changes are influencing the resources of all nations, especially agriculture, fuel sources, and water supplies, and having an impact on every facet of life, especially among the young and aging populations
The Marshall Weinberg Population, Development, and Climate Change Fellows Program, administered jointly by the School of Natural Resources and Environment and the Population Studies Center, will provide funding support for students who are considering, or already engaged in, research at the intersection of climate change, demography, and development. We seek highly motivated, pre-candidate applicants from all disciplines for this exciting opportunity. Awards for research activities will range up to $7,500. Proposed activities must integrate all three substantive areas and have an international component.
