Environmental Sustainability Fellowship Awards – Deadline Extension

We are pleased to announce a deadline extension for the Environmental Sustainability Fellowship for students in the 12 month Master of Public Administration in Environmental Science and Policy.

The School of International and Public Affairs, Environmental Sustainability Fellows will be awarded for the first time by the Master of Public Administration in Environmental Science and Policy program for the academic year 2012-2013. Environmental Sustainability Fellows will receive $20,000 each toward their tuition. We have extended the application deadline for the award to our next application deadline of January 15, 2012.

Nearly half of all students in the MPA Environmental Science and Policy program receive partial fellowships based on merit and need. Applicants must apply by the January 15, 2012 deadline to be considered for the Environmental Sustainability Fellowship or one of our other partial program fellowship awards.

The 12-month program was jointly developed by Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs and the Earth Institute, and trains sophisticated managers and policymakers to apply innovative, interdisciplinary and sustainable solutions to environmental issues. Our approach reflects the system-level thinking that is needed to understand ecological interactions and maintain the health of Earth’s interconnected systems.

Graduates are working in diverse organizations domestically and globally as consultants, environmental protection and restoration specialists, project managers, policy analysts, directors of environmental services, environmental and public health advisors, teachers, researchers, and environmental biologists and engineers.

For more information about the program, please attend our information session on Thursday, December 8. You can either RSVP by email to Sarah Tweedie, at or RSVP online at
