UC Santa Barbara envisions an opportunity to restore this funding and to replicate and expand upon this model of graduate research success by establishing the Environmental Solutions Graduate Fellowship program at UC Santa Barbara. This intervention is aimed to extend the impact of graduate research and, perhaps equally importantly, to send a strong and clear message to graduate students that the outputs of their research and their commitment to science are indeed more needed and more valued than ever before. Elements of the proposal further target translating the success of graduate students into success for next generation environmental scholars through graduate/undergraduate research partnerships.
