We are pleased to announce two exciting fellowship opportunities for incoming Ph.D. students. Each fellowship provides three years of graduate support.

Swaner Fellowship in Ecological Planning
Open to incoming Ph.D. students interested in the integration of ecology 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 Center for Ecological Planning & Design (CEPD), an interdisciplinary hub for collaborative thinking and research at the nexus of the built and natural environments and human communities. CEPD faculty and students think broadly and connectively, while embedding research and practice in the particular geographic, cultural, and political context of the American West.

Fellowship in Community Engagement and Diversity
Open to incoming Ph.D. students interested in planning processes in diverse populations across a range of scales from the neighborhood to the region, potentially addressing issues related to the Intermountain West and engaging local urban and rural communities. We especially desire applicants who want to collaborate with local indigenous communities through our College’s DesignBuildBluff program and/or with immigrants and Latin/x communities in the West Side of Salt Lake City through University Neighborhood Partners.
