The M. Gordon Wolman Fellowship

Reds Wolman was committed to the idea that environmental leadership requires knowledge both deep and broad. He saw that environmental problems were inherently interdisciplinary
and that their solutions required the combined efforts of scientists, engineers and social scientists. He played a leading role-by personal example, by academic leadership at Johns
Hopkins University and through his influence on generations of students and colleagues-in defining the nature and scope of innovative and rigorous interdisciplinary environmental
education and research.

The M. Gordon Wolman Fellowship will honor Reds Wolman by carrying forward his vision of interdisciplinary environmental research and education. The fellowship will be awarded to an outstanding incoming PhD student eager to pursue challenges in the environment and society in an integrated and interdisciplinary context. The goal is to establish a fellowship that will be awarded annually and will provide two years of support. Its recipients, both current and emeritus fellows, will form the nucleus of a community of young scholars.
