Christopher J. Taylor
2001 STAR Graduate Fellow
North Carolina State University, Raleigh

This fellowship made it possible for me to conduct my dissertation research. It is the only fellowship program available for long-term support of graduate work in the APPLIED environmental fields! The support allowed me to take advantage of several conferences, meetings and workshops that further enhanced my career.

It was very unfortunate that during my tenure, there was never a conference held for all the fellows. While many of us communicated via email (particularly during the periods when the program was at risk of being cut), it would have been very useful to interact at a larger gathering in person. I have a feeling that this would have resulted in some very interesting research collaborations either during our fellowships or after completion of our degrees. I hope that there is a way that this part of the program can be reestablished.

Finally, this fellowship program is extremely well managed. There was a seamless and flawless execution of payment of tuition, reimbursements and response to important fellowship questions. This was entirely due to the cooperation between my university fellowship officer (Mr. Todd Marcks and Dr. David Schaefer) and the officers in the EPA STAR fellowship office, particularly Ms. Georgette Boddie and Ms. Joyce Blake.

Once again, thank you for honor of participating in this fellowship program. If I can return the favor and be of any service to this program, please do not hesitate to contact me.
