Ethan Johnson

Ethan Johnson, a rising third-year student at the University of Louisville School of Law, has been awarded a scholarship from the Ecological Society of America. The scholarship will assist him in attending the society's August 2019 annual meeting in Louisville and is awarded from the society's Inclusive Ecology section.

"I’m honored to receive this scholarship as part of the Ecological Society of America’s efforts to fully reflect demographic and cultural diversity, and provide support for ecologists regardless of sexual orientation or socioeconomic status," says Johnson.

"As someone whose training focuses on the policy applications of ecological and environmental studies, having access to the world’s preeminent association of ecologists will be critical to my personal and professional development. Simply put, this opportunity will allow me to learn from and collaborate with incredible scholars and citizen scientists whose work shapes the way we understand human relationships with the world around us."

Founded in 1915, the Ecological Society of America is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of scientists devoted to promoting ecological science.

"Ethan is an outstanding student and most deserving," says Professor Tony Arnold, an environmental law scholar who will also be presenting at the conference.
