The Cameron Speth Fellowship provides funding for students from developing nations and Japan to carry out summer internships at the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the World Resources Institute (WRI), two institutions founded by former F&ES Dean Gus Speth. Speth received the Blue Planet Prize from the Asahi Glass Foundation of Japan in 2002 and donated part of his award to the NRDC and WRI in honor of his wife, Cameron. One student at each organization will be awarded a fellowship for a 10 to 12 week internship over the summer of 2017. Fellowship award amounts are determined by and paid by each host organization.
Candidate eligibility and selection criteria:
- Master’s degree students are to come from developing countries or Japan;
- Likely to contribute to environmental policy and program development in developing countries, and (have the) potential to reach others through future teaching and research, or as policymakers and/or program managers;
- Master’s degree students returning to F&ES in the fall of 2017.
Fellowship information and application instructions will be posted in the coming weeks. Stay tuned or email Alyssa Student for more information.
