The ENR Fellowship Program

Interdisciplinary Research Projects | Fellowships | Recent Publications

Each year, the University of Oregon ENR Center offers fellowships to about twenty students through a competitive application process. Students chosen as ENR Fellows have the great opportunity to work with expert faculty members and community stakeholders on some of the most-cutting edge environmental issues of today.  As an ENR Fellow, students engage in project development, substantive research and writing, and community outreach.  

Fellowship appointments are for one year.  Fellows may re-apply in subsequent years, but re-appointment is not automatic.

The ENR Center gives out three types of ENR Fellowships.  To learn more about each type of ENR Fellowship, click the links below. 

Post-Graduate Fellowships

The Environmental and Natural Resources Law (ENR) Center is pleased to offer $5,000 project stipends to support recent Oregon Law graduates in bridging the gap between graduating law school and obtaining long-term public interest environmental law employment. 

Each ENR Post-Graduate Fellow will execute a discrete research project under faculty supervision for one of ENR’s seven interdisciplinary projects: the Conservation Trust Project; the Environmental Law & Policy Project; the Food Resiliency Project; the Global Environmental Democracy Project; the Native Environmental Sovereignty Project; the Oceans Coasts and Watersheds Project; and the Sustainable Land Use Project.

ENR Post-Graduate Fellow projects will be divided and structured into two phases.  The stipend will be distributed in two payments of $2,500 – at the end of Phase I of the project, and again at the end of Phase II.  The faculty supervisor of the project must certify that the project has been satisfactorily completed in order for the funds to be released.
