William H. Greenberg Fellowship

grnbrg fell abdul2The William H. Greenberg Fellowship was established by Mrs. Phyllis Greenberg to honor her husband who was a graduate of Rutgers University, Class of 1944. Greenberg fellows are Rutgers University graduate students who have completed their qualifying exams and whose Ph.D. research fits within the scope of the Rutgers Climate Institute. Thus, Greenberg Fellows receive substantial support as their academic endeavors are related to studying the causes of climate change, understanding its effects on our society and environment, and informing society about those impacts. Preference is given to students concentrating in science as opposed to policy. Once awarded, the Greenberg Fellowship is renewed annually as long as the recipient is making satisfactory progress toward the Ph.D. degree. Thus the fellowship typically becomes available when the current recipient has completed her or his dissertation requirements.
