The Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies has selected nine graduate students as Andrew Sabin International Environmental Fellows, with each to receive up to $40,000 for postgraduate work.
The Andrew Sabin Family Foundation created the Sabin Fellowship program at Yale in 2011 to provide scholarship support for students from developing countries, and to provide additional postgraduate awards to those students returning to their home countries.
“I am excited to support these dynamic and energetic scholars from around the world through scholarships and by jump-starting their environmental careers,” Mr. Sabin, who lives in Springs, said in a press release.
“My goal is to lower their debt burden while in school, and then offer a powerful incentive for each of them to return to their home countries and regions as quickly as possible to work on pressing environmental issues. In the long run, I’m hoping to help create a global network of committed young environmental leaders who are tackling tough issues like climate change and biodiversity loss.”
