We are now accepting applications for the Swaner PhD Fellowship in Ecological Planning!

This competitive Fellowship provides three years of full graduate support and is open to incoming PhD students interested in the integration of ecological science and systems thinking with the processes of planning and design, social-ecological systems and resilience, and urban hydrology and urban nature. The fellow will work within the interdisciplinary community of the Center for Ecological Planning and Design and must be accepted into the PhD Program in Planning, Policy and Design in the Department of City and Metropolitan Planning.
