ICGC Fellowships and Grants

The Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change (ICGS) offers the following fellowships for students currently enrolled in the Graduate School:

Compton International Fellowships provide research support to graduate students from sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America whose studies and research will address issues of peace, security, and conflict resolution in those regions, especially in relation to population and environmental concerns. Students must be committed to returning to the region to apply their skills and education. Compton International Fellowships are available to both incoming students and to graduate students currently enrolled at the University of Minnesota.

ICGC offers small grants for its currently affiliated students. ICGC Pre-dissertation Research Grants and International Internship Grants give short-term, project-specific financial support and are open only to current ICGC Scholars.

Students who wish to be nominated for the Compton International Fellowship must be nominated by the graduate program. Forms and details are available at the ICGC websote. Forms requesting nomination must be submitted to Kathy Walter in 250B EdSciB by Monday, January 4, 2010 .
