Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources & the Environment Student Research Fellowships

Stegner Center Fellowships provide recipients with the opportunity to work closely with a member of the faculty on a range of projects involving environmental and natural resources law. Students receive an excellent educational experience that may include research on pending legal issues and opportunities to co-author scholarly publications. Stegner Center Fellows also receive an attractive package of financial benefits. The program is competitive and is designed to recruit students with superb motivation and research and writing skills (which may be demonstrated in ways not measured by GPA) that are interested in environmental and natural resources issues. Fellows are paired with faculty members who are willing to build rich educational components into their research and service projects.

Fellows are expected to work approximately 150 hours per semester (roughly 10 hours/week), and should be prepared to make a firm commitment to that level of time and effort. Applicants should take into account any planned outside work or extra-curricular activities before making this commitment. Fellows will be required to maintain and submit time records as a prerequisite to receipt of the stipend payments and tuition benefits described below.
