Rising Environmental Leaders Program (RELP)
The Stanford Woods Institute is working to develop the next generation of environmental leaders through its Rising Environmental Leaders Program (RELP).
This year-round program, initiated in 2011, helps graduate students and postdoctoral scholars hone their leadership and communications skills to maximize the impact of their research. Participants also are extended professional development and networking opportunities including introductions to global leaders from government, NGOs, think tanks and business to:
complement students' formal education with hands-on, experiential learning;
provide knowledge on opportunities to maximize research impact;
build a network of peers and partners; and
provide exposure to career tracks outside academia.
Open to graduate and postdoctorate scholars.
