Bullard Fellowships, Forest Research – Harvard University
Harvard University awards a limited number of Bullard Fellowships annually to individuals representing a variety of disciplines and approaches to the study of forested ecosystems. These full-time residential fellowships allow individuals to foster their scientific and professional growth and to contribute to research on forests at Harvard.
A major goal of the Bullard Fellowship program is to enhance research activities at Harvard Forest and build long-term collaborations that connect Harvard Forest with other parts of the University. Fellows can be based at the Harvard Forest or associated with other departments and centers at Harvard, such as the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, the Harvard University Center for the Environment, the Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability, and the Arnold Arboretum. Bullard Fellowships are not intended for post-doctoral fellows; instead they are targeted at individuals with a record of independent scholarship and professional accomplishment. Fellowships are occasionally awarded in the arts and environmental humanities, though these are rare. Please note that proposals in the arts and humanities must demonstrate a strong connection to the research at Harvard Forest and will undergo a separate review process led by University colleagues from the appropriate discipline.
Fellowships are typically for 6–12 months, with a maximum stipend of $75,000 for a full-year Fellowship. Awards are not intended for graduate students or recent postdoctoral candidates. Fellows are expected to be in residence throughout their fellowship.
Harvard Forest is committed to establishing and maintaining a diverse and inclusive community that collectively supports and implements our mission.
