China Environmental Stewardship Award Announces Winners in 2014 and Opens Application for 2015

Funded by ConocoPhillips and managed by the Institute of International Education, the China Environmental Stewardship Award was launched in 2013 to support promising graduate students at Chinese universities to study, research and train in the fields of environmental protection, risk management and sustainable development. Winners are awarded up to U.S. $25,000 in funding over three years. In addition to providing direct financial support for research and training, the program offers participants networking and leadership development opportunities.

Last year, the program attracted applicants from 32 academic institutions who are working in a variety of areas within environmental protection. The judging panel, consisting of representatives of a variety of research institutions, governmental and non-governmental organizations, selected five winners from throughout China, all of whom showed a unique sense of personal mission. The winners’ interest areas ranged from the effect of PM2.5 particles on the respiratory system to the impact of alien species on vulnerable habitats.

The funds they received will ensure they can continue their important research which they otherwise may have had to abandon due to financial constraints.

Last year’s winners:

    - Mr. Gongbuzeren: Managing Rangelands

      Gongbuzeren is a PhD candidate majoring in Natural Resource Management at Peking University’s College of Environmental Science & Engineering. His work focuses on the interaction between market-based policy interventions and community institutions, the role of pastoral communities in grassland conservation, and the impact of rangeland management policies.
