Promoting Environmental Scholarship and Communication
The Carson Scholars program is dedicated to the vision created by Rachel Carson who, through her writings and work, alerted the world to the dangers of chemical pesticides and launched our modern environmental movement. Carson Scholarships are given to excellent and diverse graduate students at the University of Arizona who are studying renewable energy, environment, social justice, and related disciplines. One-year scholarships of $5,000 are awarded for the calendar year. Scholarships are sponsored by the Institute of the Environment, the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice, the UA Renewable Energy Network, Biosphere 2, and private donations.
