Supporting Students from Developing Countries with Scholarships and Internships

A recent anonymous gift of $200,000 to the Earth Institute will provide financial support for students from developing countries. The gift will fund two scholarships for students in our MA in Climate and Society and MPA in Environmental Science and Policy programs, and will also provide funding for summer internships.

This vital support of students from developing countries in our MA in Climate and Society and MPA in Environmental Science and Policy programs, in addition to funding field-based internships, will allow them to make crucial links between climate and society, and apply their passion for environmental studies to the exciting potential for policy to convert scientific understanding into tangible action.

The anonymous donor is helping the Earth Institute prepare the next generation of climate and environmental science leaders, and we are grateful for their support and vision.
