We are extremely pleased to announce the selection of the 2011 PERISHIP Fellows in Hazards, Risk, and Disasters!! Started in 2004, the PERISHIP Fellowship was initially established as a partnership between The Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado and the Public Entity Risk Institute (PERI) with funding from the National Science Foundation to support dissertation fellowships for work in all aspects of natural and human-made hazards, risk and disasters across all disciplines. In 2006, 2008, and 2009, Swiss Re sponsored 2 fellowships for work in the physical sciences and the National Science Foundation and provided funding the remaining fellowships across all disciplines for work in any relevant field in the natural and physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, engineering, or interdisciplinary programs. The National Science Foundation has continued funding for the program for fellowships in 2010, 2011, and 2012.

The current 2011 PERISHIP Fellows join the accomplished 34 fellows in over 12 disciplines awarded in the previous years. Please click on the following links for biographies and descriptions of the dissertation work:
