In support of the University of California’s commitment to a smoke and tobacco free UC and its critical role in developing research, public health, and policy solutions for the rapidly evolving “smoking” landscape particularly among youth and young adults, the UC Systemwide Smoke and Tobacco Free Task force is soliciting applications for 2017-18 UC Smoke and Tobacco Free Student Fellowships. The purpose of these awards is to help foster the next generation of leaders to reduce the harms and social costs from smoking and use of tobacco products worldwide, and to enable UC to be a leader among university systems in maintaining smoke & tobacco free environments.
A total of ten fellowships of $12,000 each will be awarded across the system. These fellowships are non-need-based and intended to support undergraduate or graduate student smoke and tobacco free projects among the ten UC campuses.
Below is the Call for Applications including background on these awards, a description of fellowship requirements, eligibility information, application requirements, review criteria and instructions on how to apply.
Feel free to spread the word to UC students.
All applications are due by May 12, 2017 at noon and nee do be submitted to Elloi delos Reyes at firstname.lastname@example.org
Together, let’s all BREATHEWELL!
