FIU and the Everglades Foundation together form a powerful partnership for the Everglades. We pride ourselves on pooling our expertise and reach to train undergraduate and graduate students, conduct leading science to inform policy and management decisions, and engage and inform the public, ultimately to protect and restore America’s Everglades.
Together, FIU’s School of Environment, Arts & Society (SEAS) and the Everglades Foundation are providing scholarships to full-time FIU graduate students pursuing Everglades restoration-related research. The FIU ForEverglades Scholarship awards up to $20,000 to Ph.D. students or up to $10,000 to master’s degree students.
Annually, we award the FIU ForEverglades Scholarships with funds from the Everglades Foundation matched by donations like yours. Please consider making a gift today! Every dollar counts! For more information, contact Ady Arguelles at firstname.lastname@example.org or (305) 348-7942.
2018 ForEverglades Impact Report
In this year’s impact report, we highlight some of the successes and challenges in restoration efforts, and pay tribute to the many students and collaborators that drive this powerful partnership.
At no other time has supporting Everglades restoration been more important. Hurricane Irma exposed much of the ecosystem to massive winds and storm surges. This stress, on top of a long history of depleted freshwater flows and accelerated saltwater encroachment, demonstrates the urgent need to restore the Everglades and advance our understanding of the system’s resiliency to manage such stressors. In response, FIU’s School of Environment, Arts and Society and Everglades Foundation are providing scholarships to full-time FIU graduate students pursuing research to protect and save the Everglades.
