Harvard Forest recently announced the 2009-10 Charles Bullard Fellows in Forest Research. The fellowship program was established in 1962 to support the advanced research of individuals who show promise in making important contributions to forestry, defined in its broadest sense as the human use and study of forested environments, either as scholars or administrators.
This year’s Bullard Fellows were selected from a large pool of international applicants and cover a broad array of forest-related subjects. The six distinguished practitioners and academics from across the United States and globe will spend one to two semesters conducting research based in Cambridge or at the Harvard Forest in Petersham, Mass.
The fellows are supported by an endowment named after the benefactor Charles Bullard, and while in residence at Harvard, they will interact with faculty and students, give seminars, and participate in conferences and symposia, while availing themselves of the University’s resources for research. Applications are now being accepted for 2010-11.
