CLF Predoctoral Fellowship Program

The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future is now accepting applications for its 2007-2008 Predoctoral Fellowship Program. These fellowships support predoctoral students who are committed to the discovery and/or application of knowledge about the environmental, economic, social and health impacts of industrial food-animal production practices in the United States and/or abroad.

Johns Hopkins students from any division of the university, including those applying to a doctoral program at the time of this application, are eligible for support during any stage of their doctoral program.

Each fellowship provides one year of support in an amount up to $50,000 to be used for tuition, stipend and/or research expenses depending on individual needs. Current CLF fellows may apply for academic year 2007-2008 to compete equally with new applicants. While there is no limitation to the number of years a fellow may be supported, it is expected that students will seek other grant funding as they progress through their program. Note: Tuition will be paid only for first- or second-year doctoral students.

While receiving support from the CLF, fellows will be expected to participate in appropriate CLF activities, to represent CLF at selected meetings and to serve as a scientific resource to CLF. Awards will be announced in early May.
