Student Support Program

About the Student Support Program

Originally known as the Rutgers Climate Institute Student Support Fund, this initiative was created in 2015 with a generous seed grant to the Rutgers Climate Institute from the family of William H. Greenberg (Rutgers University Class of 1944) to support Rutgers student travel and related expenses for the purposes of climate change education and research. With the Fall 2023 creation of Rutgers Climate and Energy Institute (RCEI), the Rutgers Student Support Program transitioned to RCEI.

The RCEI Student Support Program is intended to further students' education and scholarship, enable them to develop, conduct and collaborate with other academics, and improve their ability to translate their research to a range of constituencies (e.g., general public, other students, educators, policymakers, governmental and non-governmental organizations) all key to their training as the next generation of climate and energy scientists, educators, and professionals. In addition, the Student Support Program facilitates students' ability to showcase their research, network and establish connections that will contribute to their success once they have completed their education at Rutgers University.
