In the last 10 years our graduate students have held 25 NSF, 2 Fulbright, 3 Switzer, 1 NASA and 2 EPA Star fellowships, and have earned 69 awards from professional societies, including 16 for best presentation. Over 90 % of our Ph.D. graduates now hold academic or government positions.

In celebration of our 30th Anniversary, the faculty of EEB have established a fund to promote excellence in research by our outstanding graduate students. You can contribute to this effort by donating to:
