SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced more than $1.6 million in Science to Achieve Results graduate fellowships for 13 students at universities in Arizona, California, Hawaii and Nevada. The fellowships, which will allow these students to further their education while conducting environmental research, were part of more than $6 million awarded to 52 students across the nation.

"Through EPA’s funding, the STAR fellows will pursue innovative research projects while attaining advanced academic degrees," said Alexis Strauss, EPA’s Acting Regional Administrator for the Pacific Southwest. "The work these students are doing is inspirational, and will help address environmental challenges in fields such as atmospheric chemistry, green energy, hydrogeology and toxicology."

Since 1995, the STAR fellowship program has awarded nearly 2,000 students a total of more than $65 million in funding. Recipients have engaged in innovative research opportunities, with some becoming prominent leaders in environmental science. This year’s STAR fellows are poised to become the next generation of environmental professionals who can make significant impacts in environmental science and beyond.
