The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is offering Greater Research Opportunities (GRO) for students in environmentally related fields of study.
|The GRO program, like its predecessor (the Minority Academic Institution or MAI program), is intended to strengthen the environmental research capacity of institutions of higher education that receive limited funding to build such capacity, including in particular institutions with substantial minority enrollment. The program supports quality environmental education to undergraduate and graduate students, thereby encouraging them to pursue careers in environmentally related fields. This goal is consistent with the mission of EPA, which is to provide leadership in the nation’s environmental science, research, education, assessment, restoration, and preservation efforts. This mission will benefit both the public and private sectors that will need a steady stream of well-trained and culturally diverse environmental specialists if our society is to meet the environmental challenges of the future. These fellowships are intended to help defray costs associated with environmentally oriented study leading to a academic degrees conferred at the undergraduate and graduate levels.|
