Apply for the Voss Environmental Fellowship

Voss Environmental Fellows funds Brown juniors to undertake use-inspired research summer projects. Fellows are co-advised by Brown or Brown-MBL faculty member and the end user of the research, with the goal of producing new knowledge that is both scientifically valid and useful in improving environmental policy or practice. The program is open to students and faculty from all departments, and students receive a $3500 stipend and modest research fund.

The application (due February 14, 2014) requires a well-developed project concept, so we encourage applicants to start finding mentors and developing a project early. Learn more about the work of past Voss Fellows at, and contact Program Director Prof. Heather Leslie with questions.
