Barbara Hauxhurst Cofrin Graduate Research Assistantships

Two Barbara Hauxhurst Cofrin Graduate Research Assistantships are available for students pursuing the Master of Science degree in Environmental Science and Policy (ES&P). The purpose of these graduate research fellowships are to provide research experience for developing professionals in the fields of environmental science, and environmental policy and administration. Each recipient conducts research under the supervision on an ES&P faculty member for an average or at least 20 hours per week throughout the award period, and this research is the basis for the recipient’s master’s thesis. Students also receive an annual stipend. The exact amount of the stipend will be determined on an annual basis. Research fellowships generally last for two years.

To qualify for assistantships, the applicant must:

  • Be fully admitted to the ES&P master’s degree program (thesis track) and have a faculty advisor willing to supervise the thesis;
