DENIN announces new cohort of doctoral fellowship recipients

The Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) has announced its third class of DENIN Environmental Fellows. The program supports doctoral students whose research interests demonstrate a clear bridge between science and society. Five recipients were chosen following a rigorous selection process that included a written research proposal and an interview with finalists. In addition to the intellectual merit of their research proposals, candidates were expected to demonstrate a commitment to communicating and transferring the benefits of their research to the wider world.

“We are humbled by the exceptional talent and commitment to the environment among DENIN Fellows,” said Jeanette Miller, DENIN associate director. “For the next two years, they are part of the face of DENIN, and over the course of their lives, will be significant leaders.”

The 2016 DENIN Environmental Fellows are supported in part through the generosity of private donors who have supported two named fellowships. The fellowships are also supported by the Unidel Foundation and the National Science Foundation through the Delaware Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR).
