    The Next Generation Fellowship is a 2 year program for students currently enrolled in graduate studies related to Earth System Sciences at a North American university (USA, Mexico, Canada). This program provides the opportunity for Fellows to explore the interplay between scientific research, diversity and inclusion, and public policy within the field of Earth Systems Science. 

    During their two year fellowship, Fellows pursue one of three tracks - Earth System Science; Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; or Science Policy - collaborating with UCAR experts while participating in dedicated professional development and leadership training opportunities.

    Each Fellow receives a $40,000 award over two years ($10,000 twice per year); up to 20 weeks of paid research trips to Boulder, CO or Washington, D.C. or other agreed upon location; funding to attend conferences, professional coaching; and the support of a like minded cohort. 

    Applications for the 2024 cohort are currently being accepted through the UCAR website. Applications must be submitted in full by May 31st, 2024 via the UCAR program website: https://www.ucar.edu/opportunities/fellowships/ucar-next-generation-fellowships
