Leading on Climate
The UC President’s Bonnie Reiss Climate Action Fellowship Program funds student-generated projects that support the UC system’s climate action goals. All 10 UC campuses, five academic health centers, plus the UC Office of the President, UC Agriculture and Natural Resources and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory participate in the program. The program, which began in spring 2015, is open to both undergraduate and graduate students, and administered at each location to ensure that student efforts align with local needs.
The University of California lost one of its most passionate, caring and effective advocates with the passing of Regent Bonnie Reiss in 2018. One of Bonnie's biggest passions was working to mitigate the effects of global climate change, and so the Fellowship program was renamed in her honor. Students are known as Reiss Fellows, and their work will become part of Bonnie's long and distinguished legacy.
All Bonnie Reiss Climate Action Fellows' project details including title, description, and poster can be found in the Master CA Fellows spreadsheet. The most current fellows' work are highlighted in a separate tab.
