The University of California, a national leader in sustainability, launched the Carbon Neutrality Initiative (CNI) with an aim of emitting net zero greenhouse gases from its activities, buildings, and vehicle fleets by 2025. UC Davis is committed to teaching and research that explores climate change solutions, expanding its energy efficiency efforts, increasing its use of renewably sourced energy, and undertaking other endeavors to achieve this goal. In order to reach carbon neutrality, it will be critical to engage the entire UC Davis community.
To encourage student engagement in the CNI and in general sustainability efforts at UC Davis, and to support work that students are doing to advance sustainable practices on the UC Davis campus, up to two students will be awarded $4,000 each in the form of stipend funds for student engagement-based fellowships with an emphasis on undergraduate students. All students (undergraduate, graduate and professional) are encouraged to apply.
The application deadline is Wednesday, May 17 at 1pm. The application announcement can be found here.
