The Bullitt Foundation will start accepting applications for the Bullitt Environmental Fellowship on January 1, 2015. Each year, one outstanding graduate student from a university located in the Pacific Northwest or British Columbia is selected for this prestigious award of $100,000, distributed over two years. The Fellowship was established in 2007 to honor Priscilla Bullitt Collins, the late chair of the Bullitt Foundation who donated her time, energy and money working for the public good.
Candidates must have a strong academic record, a demonstrated capacity for leadership, the promise of emerging as an environmental leader, and a faculty member nomination. Students of color, or those who come from a disadvantaged background or who have overcome significant hardship are highly encouraged to apply for this award.
Please help us spread this announcement widely by sharing with your colleagues and encourage any graduate candidate student with the desired qualities to submit an application by April 1, 2015.
