  • 1 of 55 awarded $88,000 from the EPA to fund M.S. research

The EPA’s Science To Achieve Results graduate fellowship program supports masters and doctoral candidates in environmental studies. Each year, students in the United States compete for STAR fellowships through a rigorous review process. Since the program began in 1995, EPA has awarded approximately 1,884 STAR fellowships to students in every state and most territories. Fellowships have helped educate new academic researchers, government scientists, science teachers and environmental engineers.

The AMS Graduate Fellowship Program is a source of scholarships, useful resources, and unique opportunities for outstanding students looking to pursue graduate education in the atmospheric or related sciences. Sponsored by NASA Earth Science.

  • Award totaling $17,500 over 3 years 

The Seattle Chapter ARCS Foundation Fellowship supports the best and brightest of our nation’s science and engineering graduate students, whose rigorous academic endeavors and cutting-edge research are opening pathways to scientific discoveries that will benefit our state, our nation and our world.

MIT Prize in recognition of innovative experimental design, care in data collection, and sensitive application of results to research problems for undergraduate thesis entitled, “The Effect of Volcanic Aerosols on Mid-Latitude Ozone Recovery“.
