UC Berkeley graduate students committed to advancing sustainability are eligible for the Art Rosenfeld Award for Energy Efficiency, recognizing the Berkeley professor who is a global champion of energy conservation and technologies to support it.
Annual Rosenfeld Awards of initially $5,000 will be given to promote research and scholarly pursuits in energy efficiency, with the size of the awards increasing as the fund grows. Recipients will be passionate in pursuing an education and career in the science, policy, or implementation of energy-efficiency.
A renowned Berkeley physicist, Art Rosenfeld pioneered the efficiency standards that make California an international leader in energy conservation and sustainability. His ideas and successful advocacy now save Americans billions of dollars each year.
The Rosenfeld Fund is an endowment managed by the Berkeley Energy and Climate Institute (BECI) and the UC Berkeley Graduate Assembly (GA) to support graduate and professional students who pursue career paths and educational opportunities in local and global sustainability.
