Environmental Studies Book Prize

Established in 2017, the Environmental Studies Book Prize recognizes students in four categories for outstanding senior-thesis research and the ability to communicate the results and significance of their work. The awards are presented in the areas of Environmental Humanities, Environmental Science, Environmental Social Science and Engineering. Candidates are interviewed by PEI faculty and members of the institute's executive committee, who then select the winners.
