Graduate Student Support

History and Purpose:

David and Lucile Packard, of the Hewlett-Packard Company, created their foundation in 1964 because they believed that private organizations had to take a financial interest and a leadership role in the development of organizations to meet society's needs. The foundation has given generously to universities, national and local institutions, as well as community and youth groups. According to their website, "The David and Lucile Packard Foundation will continue to support these organizations with the hope and expectation that we can strengthen them and, thereby, conserve and enhance resources and improve the quality of life in our community, the nation, and the world."

In April 1995, the Foundation funded an endowed post-doctoral fellowship: the David and Lucile Packard Foundation Fellowship in Environmental Engineering. It is used by the Bourns College of Engineering Center for Environmental Research and Technology (CE-CERT) for research leading to better understanding of air pollution issues.

Selection and Guidelines:

Award for a post-doctoral fellowship in environmental engineering to better understand air pollution issues.
