Equity & Diversity Funding
EH encourages applicants from underrepresented backgrounds to apply for our Equity & Diversity Fellowship. This fellowship carries all the benefits and responsibilities of our standard fellowship, and carries a larger stipend -- $20,000 per year. Please explain your interest in EH’s Equity & Diversity Fellowship on your application in the Additional Information section of the application, "Additional comments you consider pertinent/important to this application".
The University of Utah and Graduate School is committed to supporting a diverse student body.
Our students take campus jobs as part of their financial support, and those jobs train them for work after graduation while introducing them to a network of environmental thinkers. The Director of the Program assigns this work after considering students' interest and Program needs.
Our students work on campus at places like:
- American West Center
- Department of Writing and Rhetoric Studies
- Environmental & Sustainability Studies
- Global Change & Sustainability Center
- Natural History Museum of Utah
- Special Collections, Marriott Library
- Sustainability Office
- University of Utah Press
- Utah Museum of Fine Arts
We offer summer support for selected research and internships so that our students can explore their dreams in the context of real-world environmental challenges. The funding is approved each spring so students can spend their summers focusing on making a difference with non-profits, government organizations and with research projects, locally and in other states.
