Two Graduate Research Fellowships will be awarded to Master’s students for the academic year 2020-2021. The Fellowship enables a more inclusive graduate academic experience – incorporating learning, teaching and research – by providing more opportunities for Environmental Science and Policy (ESP) graduate students to serve as Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs).
Both fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis.

Applicants must submit all materials via email to Stephanie Lister in the ESP Graduate Program Office at slister1@gmu.edu by 5 pm, Monday, March 2, 2020. See Application Process below:
