We extend congratulations and a warm welcome to our newest cohort of Global Change Fellows! This group of 11 talented students, representing five colleges, have joined the SE CASC team to begin or continue research in diverse areas of study related to global change. Stay tuned throughout the year for our Researcher Spotlight series where we will interview each of these students and feature their research endeavors and Global Change Fellow experience! In the meantime, you can explore their profile pages to learn more about their background and research interests.

To begin their cohort experience, the Global Change Fellows were joined by SE CASC Consortium students from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, Duke University, University of Florida, and Auburn University, including students in the NSF Research Traineeship program, to take part in the week-long Climate Adaptation and Resilience Immersion event. This virtual meeting provided students with an opportunity to develop collegial relationships, gain an understanding of resource management challenges related to climate change, and become familiar with the mission and scientific approaches of the SE CASC.
Interested in learning more about our Global Change Fellows program?
This program is designed to train the next generation of global change scientists by providing financial, scientific, and professional development support for graduate students who are interested in multi-disciplinary research. Theses students come together across disciplines to discover, collaborate, and share their knowledge with diverse stakeholders. Applicants must be an NC State student and must be nominated by a SE CASC Faculty Affiliate. The nomination process begins in January of each year.
If you are interested in nominating a student, but are not yet affiliated with the SE CASC, please contact SE CASC Assistant University Director, Aranzazu Lascurain (email@example.com).
