The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tuesday announced 34 fellowships for undergraduate students in 25 states and Puerto Rico to pursue environmental science and related fields of study at universities and colleges across the nation, helping to inspire the next generation of environmental scientists and engineers.
Students Zev Greenberg and Rachel Sclafani at Dickinson College and Brittney Jackson at Duquesne University in Pennsylvania were awarded fellowships.
The awards, part of EPA’s Greater Research Opportunities fellowship program, provide students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with agency scientists.
“These students’ ambitious and innovative ideas will help create a more sustainable future,” said Lek Kadeli, Acting Assistant Administrator for EPA's Office of Research and Development. “EPA is investing in the next generation of environmental scientists and engineers whose research will help achieve our mission of protecting human health and the environment.”A complete list of fellowship winners is available online.
