Brand NEW Opportunity!  Environmental Studies Technology Equity Award

The department of environmental studies is pleased to announce its new Technology Equity Award. The award aims to support historically under-represented students who are starting or continuing their environmental studies major. It is especially aimed at students who would benefit from having access to a state-of-the-art personal laptop, but due to financial need, do not currently have access to such technology.  The award aligns with Huxley College’s goals of increasing student diversity and better supporting retention and success of historically under-represented students.

A state of the art laptop will be awarded each year to qualified students to keep for the duration­ of their studies contingent on maintaining eligibility criteria and to be returned prior to graduation.  Applications are available in AH 217 or ES 539.
