Developing and deploying market-based solutions to our most pressing environmental problems requires rigorous interdisciplinary scholarship. It is critical that we encourage young scholars to participate in this process and support their contributions. The Journal of Environmental Investing Scholarship Program, a public charity under the United States Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)3, is meant to reward graduate students who write an original, rigorous, and interdisciplinary work of scholarship in a critical area of environmental investing.
Interested and qualified students are invited to submit a curriculum vitae, an extended abstract of his/her manuscript, which refers to results and generally describes how the results will be discussed, and a letter from his/her college or university attesting to the applicant’s academic status. These documents should be sent to the JEISP at firstname.lastname@example.org. If an abstract proves acceptable, the author will be invited to submit an original manuscript (no more than 5,000 words excluding notes, references, and supporting materials). Special consideration will be given to contributions from students in “emerging markets” as defined by the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank.
The deadline for applications is December 7, 2013.
