Center for Environmental Futures/ Andrew W. Mellon Undergraduate Research Symposium Award

Call for Presentations

With generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this award recognizes oral and poster presentations involving undergraduate research in the field of environmental humanities, which contextualizes and complements environmental science and policy by pursuing research on narrative, critical thinking, history, cultural analysis, aesthetics, and ethics of diverse environmental topics and issues, such as land use, animals, resource allocation, agriculture, species conservation, climate change, water, and other related issues. Research in environmental justice is also an integral part of the environmental humanities at the UO.

Three $500 awards will be given
Sponsor: UO Center for Environmental Futures

Eligibility & Conditions:

  • Open to current UO undergraduate students from all academic disciplines and majors.
