Center for Environmental Studies

Details and Application

The Center for Environmental Studies is accepting applications from students wishing to participate in the Class of 1960 Scholars Program. Nominations of students by faculty members will also be accepted.

During this academic year four distinguished scholars from a range of fields within environmental studies will be guest speakers. Each will deliver a talk open to the public. The select group of students chosen as Class of 1960 scholars will then participate in a small group discussion with each visiting scholar and will be invited to have dinner with at least one speaker during the academic year.

Selection as a Class of 1960 Scholar is both an honor and a responsibility. Scholars will be expected to attend all of the presentations and small group discussions with the visitors. In addition, scholars should plan to prepare for these meetings by completing background reading assigned by the speaker.

Participation in the program is not limited by class or by major. Students need not be environmental studies concentrators to apply. However, the program is limited and if there is an overwhelming show of interest, seniors and juniors will be given priority.
