Mid-Career Bullard Fellowships in Forest Research at Harvard

HARVARD UNIVERSITY
BULLARD FELLOWSHIPS IN FOREST RESEARCH

Annually Harvard University awards a limited number of Bullard Fellowships to individuals in biological, social, physical and political sciences and the arts to promote advanced study or the integration of subjects pertaining to forested ecosystems. The program seeks to allow mid-career individuals to develop their own scientific and professional growth by utilizing the resources and interacting with personnel in any department within Harvard University. In recent years Bullard Fellows have been associated with the Harvard Forest, Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and the J. F. Kennedy School of Government and have worked in areas of ecology, forest management, policy and conservation. Stipends up to $60,000, are available for periods ranging from six months to one year and are not intended for travel, graduate students, or recent post-doctoral candidates. Applications from international scientists, women, and minorities are encouraged. Additional information is available on the Harvard Forest web site (http://harvardforest.fas.harvard.edu). Annual deadline for applications is February 1st.
