Call for Student Applications: The 2016-17 Albert, Norma and Howard Geller '77 Endowed Research Awards for Projects Relating to Sustainability

The George Perkins Marsh Institute announces the Geller Student Research Award Competition for 2016-17. The awards were established by the family of Dr. Howard Geller '77. Geller Student Research Awards are intended to support student-initiated research projects that advance our understanding of sustainability in the human use of resources and the environment. Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for awards. We anticipate making 3-4 awards in amounts ranging from $1,001 to $2,500, and several smaller grants, up to $1,000. It is the intention of the committee to award at least one-third of regular and small awards to undergraduate projects, again subject to the number and quality of applications received. Applications must be submitted by students. The deadline for applications is October 21, 2016 at 4:30 pm, EST. Click here for details.

Our faculty are not just teachers and scholars. They care about what happens in each student's progress to academic maturity, acting as mentors, respecting individual learning styles, and taking pride in pushing each student beyond his or her own expectations. That's why our faculty of experts give undergraduates the unique chance to work side by side with them.

Today, more than 50 percent of the undergraduate students are involved in research with a faculty member. You can find out more about pursuing academic research by talking to your faculty advisor or the head of your chosen major. Plans are also in the works for a Virtual Research Center, where research opportunities will be posted on this site. Watch for more information in the next few months.
