The Norma and Jerol Sonosky Environmental and Alternative Energy Summer Fellowship

The Norma and Jerol Sonosky Summer Fellowship supports summer graduate research in environmental themes, alternative energy, and other sustainable solutions to environmental challenges.

Promoting these themes is central to the mission of the USC Wrigley Institute, which strives to promote responsible and creative environmental stewardship in society and stimulate innovative leading-edge research in marine and environmental science.

The Fellowship is open to all qualified Ph.D. students enrolled full-time in a USC Dornsife department or program, and supports 12-weeks of independent summer research (May 19–August 22, 2014). During this time, Fellows also engage in professional development training and public outreach opportunities to communicate their research to broader audiences.

Applications are no longer being accepted for summer 2014.

Please contact Dr. Jessica Dutton with questions at or (213) 740-9888.

This fellowship is funded by the generous support of Norma and Jerol Sonosky, in partnership with the USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies.
