The Holbrook Foundation Fellowships are made possible through the generous support of George and Tara Holbrook. These fellowships for entering graduate students are intended as top-off awards designed to assist our faculty in drawing outstanding prospects with a research focus in energy efficiency to UC Santa Barbara.
The goal of the Institute is to name one student from each of our six Solutions Groups per academic year. The award provides a quarterly stipend, which is additive to the student’s existing funding over the recipient’s first year. The award also provides a paid summer Graduate Student Research position. Additional fellowship benefits include participation in select Institute events, including meetings with select visiting speakers. It is required that fellows give a short seminar during the academic year.
Awardees are selected by a committee comprised of the Solutions Group Heads, Institute Director and Associate Director.
