The Journal of Environmental Investing Scholarship Program (JEI SP; www.jeisp.org) will award US$3,500 to the graduate student who writes the most original and rigorous manuscript on a topic related to environmental investing. Students seeking an advance degree in a discipline related to environmental investing (e.g., environmental science, environmental policy, sustainability, environmental law, finance, economics, and public affairs and policy) are invited to present ideas and research.
The JEI SP was founded in 2010 by a gift from the Journal of Environmental Investing (http://www.thejei.com) to promote, encourage, and support interdisciplinary scholarship by active graduate students who are studying in relevant fields. The Program’s goal is to facilitate capital flow to effective, scalable solutions to the world’s most pressing environmental challenges.
Interested and qualified students are invited to submit a curriculum vitae, a 225-word abstract of his/her manuscript, and a letter from his/her college or university attesting to the applicant’s academic status. These documents should be sent to the JEI SP at firstname.lastname@example.org . If an abstract proves acceptable, the author will be invited to submit an original manuscript (no more than 5,000 words excluding notes, references, and supporting materials). Special consideration will be given to contributions from students in “emerging markets” as defined by the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank.
Deadline for applications is January 28, 2011. The Program expects to announce the winner by July 15, 2011.
