Environmental Conflict Resolution Stipend

Land Air Water and The ADR Center

Land Air Water wants to fund your quest of knowledge. Up to $875 is available for a successful applicant, or pair of applicants, who are interested in attending an Environmental Conflict Resolution training program.

To be considered for this funding, you (and, if you wish, a partner) must submit an application as follows:

  • A personal statement detailing which conference you would like to attend and why.
  • Explain why it is important to share this knowledge with your fellow students, and how you intend to achieve that.

This statement should be no longer than one page, double-spaced in Times New Roman 12 point font with one-inch margins on all sides

Save your application in Microsoft Word format as “Last Name_ECRapplication.doc”
Attach your application to an e-mail with the subject heading “ECR application” and direct that e-mail to the Land Air Water Co-Directors:

From the applications received, LAW will select a pool of up to ten applicants. Those applicants will then be asked to submit budget breakdowns for their proposed Environmental Conflict Resolution adventures. Budget proposals may exceed $875, but $875 is the maximum available funding. From those proposals, LAW will select up to two students whose trips will be sponsored with these funds, which must be spent prior to July 1, 2017. While the conference or training can be after July 1, receipts for registration and travel must be submitted to ASUO by July 1.

Our goal is to increase student access to knowledge and information at the crossroads of litigation (or alternatives thereto) and environmental issues. Land Air Water will be able to sponsor up to two students’ quest for knowledge by funding their trip(s) to well-known environmental and conflict resolution training programs. After attending the conference, each participant will be expected to “bring the training back to UO Law” and create a memo detailing the experience – especially highlighting the key things each participant learned. This memo will be posted to the Land Air Water page on the PIELC website, thus ensuring the information is available to future interested students.

Best of luck!
