The Everglades Foundation provides scholarships and fellowships to graduate research students pursuing the development of innovative scientific methods to advance the understanding of Everglades physical, chemical or biological processes, or research in the economic impacts of environmental changes. ForEverglades Scholarships provide up to $30,000 per year for stipends, tuition fees, travel, and other research-related expenses.
The ForEverglades scholarships are open to full-time graduate research students from all U.S. universities pursuing degrees in earth sciences, biological sciences, engineering, geography, planning and resources management, and economics. There are multiple scholarships, and so criteria will vary by award. In general, the Foundation will support research advancing Everglades physical, chemical or biological processes, or research in economic impacts of environmental changes. The Foundation has identified several specific research areas that are of special interest, including cross-disciplinary research efforts.
