The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the posting of the Request for Applications for the GRO Undergraduate Fellowships program. It is offering undergraduate fellowships for bachelor level students in environmentally-related fields of study, with the goal of providing support for their junior and senior years of study, and an internship at an EPA facility during the summer of their junior year. College sophomores should apply now in order to be eligible to receive financial support for their junior and senior years. Subject to the availability of funding and other applicable considerations, EPA plans to award approximately 34 new fellowships in the summer of 2014. The fellowship provides up to $20,700 per academic year of support and $8,600 of support for a three-month summer internship.
The GRO Fellowships program is in line with the EPA Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) Research Program. EPA’s SHC Research Program provides useful science and tools for decision makers at all levels to help communities advance sustainability as well as achieve regulatory compliance. SHC is collaborating with partners to conduct research that will result in science-based knowledge to guide decisions that will better sustain a healthy society and environment in America's communities. The research is intended for decision-makers at the federal, regional, state, and community levels.
