Global STEWARDS 2021 Application Information Session
Join us for a virtual information session to learn more about the UMD Global STEWARDS graduate training fellowship. The application period for the 2021 cohort is now open until September 30th.
Register for the information session on Tuesday, September 22 at 11am at https://go.umd.edu/2021infosession2
The information session will be hosted by the Program Director, Dr. Amy Sapkota, and the Program Manager, Dr. Rianna Murray.
UMD doctoral students from the life and public health sciences, earth system sciences, engineering and computational sciences, social-behavioral sciences, natural resource management, energy and environmental policy, and other food, energy and water (FEW)-related doctoral programs are encouraged to apply.
Funded by the National Science Foundation Research Traineeship (NRT) program, the fellowship will prepare a cadre of future leaders focused on innovations at the nexus of FE W systems. The UMD Global STEWARDS program will train doctoral students to work and communicate across FEW disciplines, from molecular to societal levels and from local to global scales, enabling transformative discoveries that can only be realized through transdisciplinary approaches. The program is meant to complement our existing PhD programs that address critical FEW challenges.
