Funded Doctoral Fellowships available to Qualified JD students to Pursue Water Law and Science at the University of Florida - Jan. 17th Application Deadline
The UF Law Environmental and Land Use Law Program is participating in the UF Water Institute’s Graduate Fellows Program which provides funding (tuition & stipend) for four years for qualified graduate students seeking to obtain a doctoral degree. J.D. graduates from accredited law schools are encouraged to apply, and need not take the GRE. J.D. students selected for the cohort will work closely with Legal Skills Professor Thomas T. Ankersen and other faculty in an interdisciplinary program that has its research theme based in Costa Rica. Cohort students will participate in the UF Law Costa Rica Program in 2018, and in the UF Law Conservation Clinic. Some Spanish is an asset but not required; there will be an expectation that the student will further develop language skills during their time in the program. Details can be found in the flyer below and attached. In addition to contacting the Water Institute directly as provided below, interested J.D. students can feel free to contact Professor Ankersen at firstname.lastname@example.org . Note that the application deadline is January 16th, 2017.
