Since the inception of the Institute for the Study of Planet Earth, now the Institute of the Environment, in 1994, the number of grants, fellowships, scholarships, and other awards available to faculty and graduate students for related scholarly work has increased, along with the average amount of each award. The funding comes from within The University of Arizona community and from outside sources. The Institute of the Environment offers a number of programs that support the research of faculty and graduate students on campus:
- Cosponsored Seminars;
- Faculty Exploratory Research Grants to seed related interdisciplinary research projects;
- Udall Center-IE Fellows Program to support research or curriculum development in the public-policy aspects of global environmental change.
The goal of the Institute of the Environment is to focus the great intellectual capabilities at The University of Arizona on providing society with the understanding and tools needed to deal with environmental change. We foster research in regional and global change, promoting research from the scale of the globe down to the finest scale needed to understand how environmental systems work.
