The Stewart Fellowship

Established to provide financial support to graduate students enrolled in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences in the School of Public Health & Health Sciences whose academic concentration is exposure science/assessment in the occupational or general environment. Recipients will conduct research in exposures due to emerging technologies such as these areas of current interest, e.g., e-cigarettes, 3-D printers, nanotechnology, fracking, and/or mathematical modeling of exposures. As areas of current interest change, the Dean or his/her designee will determine if proposed research topic(s) meet the intention of this fellowship. The results of the student’s research and work will be presented in an academic seminar. Selection will be based on the academic achievement of a candidate with strong consideration given to financial need. The candidate must have graduated from an accredited undergraduate institution with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better.
