Voss Environmental Fellowships
The Voss Environmental Fellows Program at Brown University, generously supported by the Henry David Thoreau Foundation and Peter and Pamela Voss, provides fellowship funding for independent scientific research that introduces undergraduates to opportunities in environmental scholarship, policy, and practice. Student-faculty-practitioner teams develop research projects together to meet shared goals and scientific objectives to inform and improve current and future environmental policy and management decisions. Applications are accepted in February.
