Penn State is partnering with Project Drawdown to explore and enhance 'the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming.' Undergraduate researchers are a key part of the mission to model, analyze feasibility, and develop curriculum on the 100 most substantive, existing solutions to address climate change. Penn State is recruiting 40 undergraduate scholars to spend eight weeks in an in-depth research experience with faculty and staff from units across the University.

The Drawdown solutions already exist, and most are already implemented. We need research and education to see how they're working, to understand how to scale them appropriately, and to communicate these efforts to policymakers and to the public. From art and architecture to education and engineering, Drawdown Scholars Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program (Drawdown Scholars) will work with experts from every field to contribute to the greatest challenge of our era: reversing climate change.

Student stipend is $4,000 with housing and meals provided for non-Penn State University Park participants.

The program is open to undergraduate students in any major who are interested in supporting Drawdown's mission to reverse global warming. Students from every discipline are encouraged to apply.
