The E. Thom Rumberger Fellows Program deadline Oct. 31
Applications are being taken for the first E. Thom Rumberger Fellow, a one-year fellowship in the field of environmental law, with a maximum award of $5,000. Fellows will be selected on the basis of academic achievement and a demonstrated interest in environmental issues, public policy and a commitment to public service. The deadline to apply is Oct. 31.
The fellowship will begin in spring 2014. The fellow will participate in a learning opportunity dealing with environmental policy in a state or federal agency or an NGO. The fellow also will participate in the summer Everglades course, “Ecosystems of South Florida,” a field-based interdisciplinary graduate course on watershed management, funded in part by the Florida Water Law Endowment Fund.
The Rumberger Fellowship was created by family and friends of the late Thom Rumberger (JD 61), who was the general counsel to the Everglades Foundation, founding partner of Rumberger, Kirk and Caldwell, and a renowned advocate for the environment, in particular, the Florida Everglades.
