Congratulations to Wei Mei, who received the Physical Sciences Faculty Endowed Fellowship.
The 21st century presents many challenges associated with the sustainable management of resources and protection of the environment. The good news is that opportunities exist for innovators to respond to these challenges and turn emerging ideas and research into innovative products and services, scalable companies, and environmentally friendly energy solutions.
Students can make a difference for the environment as part of a small team of UCI graduate students selected from departments across the entire campus.
The Cicerone Fellowship will allow an upper-level ESS doctoral student to broaden his or her training by providing support for one quarter. The student is expected to propose research that goes beyond that being done by his or her advisor, and that involves significant input from a secondary adviser.
The UCI Newkirk Center for Science and Society promotes appropriate and effective uses of research in the natural and social sciences to enhance the quality of human life. The Center is continuing its cycle of Newkirk Fellows, funded through a generous gift of Martha and Jim Newkirk, and is now soliciting applications from UCI graduate students from any school/department for these awards.
Congratulations to Ray G. Anderson, winner of the 2009-2010 Cicerone Fellowship (inaugural).
