Abstract
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initiated the Graduate Education Fellowships Program in 1995 as part of the Office of Research and Development's Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program. The purpose of the fellowship program is to encourage promising students to pursue advanced degrees and careers in environmentally related fields. Both the public and private sectors will need a steady stream of well-trained environmental specialists if our society is to meet future environmental challenges. Through this program, EPA continues to provide leadership in the nation's environmental science, research, education, assessment, restoration, and preservation efforts. These fellowships are intended to help defray costs associated with advanced study in academic disciplines relating to environmental management, including physical, biological, and social sciences, mathematics and computer science, engineering and environmental law. This document contains 133 abstracts describing some of the research projects in which these talented students are currently engaged. Each abstract includes the project goal, rationale for conducting the research, experimental approach, and status of the research to date. The projects reflect a diversity of research fields, including ecology, geophysics, toxicology, public policy, economics, and engineering.
