New Diversity and Rural Environmental Health fellowship opportunities for PhD students
November 23, 2020
With support from the Fralin Life Sciences Institute and the Virginia Tech Graduate School, the Global Change Center (GCC) is pleased to announce two new graduate fellowship opportunities intended to help diversify and strengthen our IGC IGEP community.
Our new Global Change Diversity Fellowships are designated for recruiting new Ph.D. students from underrepresented communities to Virginia Tech. The Rural Environmental Health Fellowships are intended to help expand existing strengths in studying environmental health issues in rural communities. Both of these fellowship opportunities will enable us to attract new talent to our IGEP and further diversify the perspectives within our group.
Together with the existing Global Change fellowships awarded to current IGC IGEP students, the Global Change Center will offer a total of eight graduate fellowship opportunities for the 2021-22 academic year. All fellowships include 12 months of graduate stipend and in-state tuition (~$40,000 total value).
