Two Alumni Receive Graduate Fellowships for Climate Change Research

Two alumni from the College of Letters and Science have been awarded graduate fellowships from the American Meteorological Society (AMS). The fellowships provide a $25,000 stipend and financial support for travel to the AMS annual meeting. A total of six fellowships were awarded for 2021.

The two awardees from UC Davis are Jared Trok (B.S., applied math and atmospheric science, ’21) and Abbey Williams (B.S., marine and coastal science, ’21). Trok will attend Stanford University for graduate study in earth systems science, and Williams will pursue a doctorate in climate sciences at UC San Diego and the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Both Trok and Williams engaged in research as undergraduates and plan to publish first-author papers detailing their work.
