Environmental Studies at the Program on the Environment trains students to lead change for a sustainable future.
Students build leadership skills in the classroom and through internships with local and national organizations, and they learn to approach problem-solving with a systems thinking perspective. The Environmental Studies program benefits from the generosity of alumni and friends. Contributions from individuals, public and private foundations and endowments provide vital support to enhance students’ academic experiences and sustain our program.
Thank you for considering a gift to Environmental Studies at the Program on the Environment. A small fraction of students obtain tuition scholarships, and many of our students work at outside jobs to attend the University of Washington.
Because of your generosity, students such as Emily Halvorsen completed an internship in rural India, working with the Central Himalayan Rural Action Group (CHIRAG) to assess the groundwater situation in the Kumaon region through spring mapping. If you would like to make a gift to support students like Emily, please visit the UW Giving page and search for the fund name.
