Tamara Reeme Fellowship

The Tamara Reeme Fellowship is for students whose educational focus aligns with the Behavior, Education, and Communication or Environmental Policy and Planning programs. This fellowship was made possible by a SEAS alumna with the goal to assist exceptional students in these fields of study.

Tamara Reeme is a 1983 BS alum who established the fellowship because she had such a wonderful experience at SEAS and is in a position to help students.
