Frank Chernosky Campus Climate Ambassador Award

This alumni-funded award is named after Frank Chernosky, a former professor and advisor at Michigan Tech.  Mr. Chernosky was an early advocate for sustainability principles who impacted many students before dying tragically from a rare form of Heart Cancer in 1971.  This award in his name consists of three forms of student support during the 2023-2024 school year: a partial tuition scholarship ($8,000), funds for professional development and/or applied work (up to $1,600), and a formal mentorship by campus and/or external professionals.  

To be considered, an applicant must be a full-time undergraduate student at Michigan Tech having completed at least three semesters of full-time enrollment at Michigan Tech by the time the award begins.  They must also have a minimum of two semesters of coursework remaining, though there is potential for flexibility to accommodate an internship or coop into the award timeframe.  Applications are due March 15, but all applicants are encouraged to start early and consult with me to help refine their ideas before applying.

For full details, including a link to the application, please visit the Michigan Tech Sustainability Blog post and open the PDF attached there.

Question, please contact Alan Turnquist.
