CLF Predoctoral Fellowships

The Center for a Livable Future is now accepting applications for its 2008-2009 Predoctoral Fellowship Program. Fellowships will be awarded to Johns Hopkins University predoctoral students in one of CLF's three program areas:

The "Farming for the Future" fellowship is intended to support predoctoral students committed to the discovery and application of knowledge about the public health, environmental, economic, social and policy implications of industrial food animal production and other forms of industrial agriculture; and/or work examining sustainable alternatives of food production in the U.S. or abroad.

The "Eating for the Future" fellowship supports interest in current food systems, sustainable alternatives to current food systems, increasing food security; appropriate food choices for ecological and human health; and effective health promotion and behavior change interventions related to dietary choices.

The "Living for the Future" fellowship supports predoctoral students interested in water quality and availability, competing demands for water; the food system's contribution to climate change; sustainability initiatives within higher education, a key impetus for societal change; and impacts of toxic chemicals on ecological and human health.

Each fellowship provides one year of support in an amount up to $60,000 to be used for tuition, stipend and/or research expenses depending on individual needs. Students are eligible for support during any stage of their doctoral program, including those applying to a doctoral program at the time of this application. Students must be enrolled in any division of the university in a PhD, ScD or DrPH program. Applications for each program area are available at fellows_prog.html.
