Scholars Program

About The Program

The Muir Institute Scholars Program awards fellowships to UC Davis graduate students classified as “continuing students” in support of policy relevant research in one of the core Muir Institute initiatives which include: One Climate, big environmental data, Wild Energy, and world water initiative; or Post Doc position (s) supporting One Climate Initiative. Grad Student Applications that connect with One Climate Partners and coordinate with Muir Institute centers and groups will be given preference. Hands-on policy driven solutions are a key goal of our programs. Each student will be awarded $5000.00 for research, travel, and publication expenses. You will be paired up with a Muir Institute Faculty Fellow. Up to six Grad Student Scholarships will be awarded. Throughout the year they will get a chance to meet with communication experts to learn how to best translate science to the public. Each awardee is expected to present their progress to the public at an event at year’s end.
