Five doctoral students selected for 2018 DENIN Environmental Fellowships

The Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) has selected its fifth class of DENIN Environmental Fellows. These highly competitive and prestigious fellowships offer financial support and professional development opportunities to graduate students at the University of Delaware.

The two-year fellowships support doctoral students whose research interests demonstrate a bridge between science and society. Five recipients were chosen following a rigorous selection process that included a written research proposal and an interview for finalists. Candidates were expected to demonstrate an ability and commitment to communicating and transferring the benefits of their research to the wider world in addition to the intellectual merit of their research proposals.

Two of this year’s fellowships are supported by a grant from the Unidel Foundation that focuses on building UD’s capacity in biogeosciences, an interdisciplinary field of science that studies the interaction between geological and biological processes. Additional support for the Environmental Fellows program is provided by private philanthropy and directly by DENIN.

Making it clear

For the past three years, almost 90 educators from around Delaware and Maryland have been working with scientists and environmental experts from the University of Delaware and the University of Maryland. The goal is to develop a richer understanding of climate change and build effective activities and instruction plans to help their students understand the data and find potential solutions.
