GCEP Final Report

In Memoriam - Dr. Stephen Schneider (1945-2010)









The Global Change Education Program (GCEP) accepted its last class of applications December 31st, 2009. The DOE Office of Science (SC) will conduct all science education activities in its Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientist (WFDTS). Please apply to the Graduate Fellowship program (DOE SCGF) at: The SCGF program supports outstanding students (U.S. citizens) pursuing graduate training in basic research areas of physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, computational sciences, and environmental sciences that are relevant to SC programs by encouraging the development of the next generation of scientific and technical talent in the U.S. (The Office of Biological and Environmental Research (OBER) will continue to support the Graduate Research Environmental Fellowships of GCEP students remaining in the program.

I wish to thank Drs. Ari Patrinos and Anna Palmisano for their respective support of GCEP as part of the BER climate research portfolio. I also wish to acknowledge Mr. Peter Lunn who originated GCEP and was program manager until his retirement from federal service in 2005. Drs. Jeff Gaffney and Nancy Marley, serving as mentoring coordinators, provided encouraging discussions with the students concerning their career directions. However our greatest appreciation is for the mentors who provided their time and intellectual resources in motivating and encouraging the many talented and gifted students over the period of GCEP’s existence.

For SCGF-related questions, please contact

Thank you.
