Climate and Society Master's Program Scholarships for Students from the Caribbean Region


Scholarships are now available for students from the Caribbean to develop knowledge related to climate change adaptation and water resources management that can be directed back to the region. The scholarships are provided by "Building Capacity to Manage Water Resources and Climate Risk in the Caribbean," a partnership between the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH), and the Center for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) at the University of West Indies (UWI).  The project is funded by Higher Education for Development (HED).

Applications for the Master's Program in Climate and Society at Columbia University are due by April 1, 2013.  However, earlier submission of applications is strongly encouraged for those interested in this scholarship.  Two full scholarships are available for the 2013-2014 academic year.  One full scholarship will be offered the following year.

Housed in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences within Columbia's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), the Climate and Society program shares its name and as well as its mission with the IRI, a research unit of the Earth Institute. 

The core coursework is a set of tailor-made courses providing a scientific basis for inquiry that stresses interdisciplinary problem solving. Core coursework includes the dynamics of climate variability and change, regional climate and climate impacts, quantitative models of climate-sensitive natural and human systems, and the integrative policy course titled managing and adapting to climate variability and change. A professional development seminar and a choice between a summer internship and research thesis complete the required core. Five electives across the fall and spring allow students to tailor the program across disciplines including economics, energy, sustainable development, atmospheric science and more.
