The Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the Public Entity Risk Institute with support from from the National Science Foundation and Swiss Re established a program in 2004 that awards dissertation fellowships for work in all aspects of natural and human-made hazards, risk and disasters in all disciplines. The dissertations produced by the fellows will contribute to the body of knowledge in hazards research. Ultimately, the program will foster the development of hazards scholars who will expand the research and practitioner communities.

Application deadline: EXTENDED TO MARCH 1, 2012 for next round!

We awarded 10 fellowships in 2004, 8 in 2006, 5 in 2008, 5 in 2009, 6 in 2010, and another 7 in 2011! We will award up to 6 awards additional awards in 2012 with funding from NSF.
