Location- Harvard University, USA
- Bullard Fellowships are generally awarded to individuals in mid-career who have established themselves in academia, public service, or in the private sector.
- For those in academic careers, preference is ordinarily given to holders of doctoral degrees, but others whose projects show promise of important contributions to forestry and forest studies, broadly defined, will be considered in terms of the likelihood that study and research at Harvard will help fulfill this promise.
- Judgments of the Committee are based primarily on the quality of the applicant’s professional accomplishments, academic record, and potential benefits from interaction with the Harvard community and its institutional resources.
- Please note: This is not a post-doctoral program; recent PhD graduates are generally not appropriate candidates for a Bullard Fellowship.
Duration – Fellowships may start at any time after September 1. Fellowships are typically 9 months, and can be no less than 6 months and no greater than 12 months in duration.
- The Fellowships carry stipends up to $60,000; the amount of each award depends on the professional status and needs of the recipient and the duration of the Fellowship.
- Fellows have the option of having the award paid either to themselves or to the Fellow’s employer.
- In most cases, the stipend will supplement income received for devoting a period to research, e.g., sabbatical leave pay for an individual in academic life, appointments with federal support for training of individuals in federal public service, or educational leave with pay for individuals in the private sector. Fellowships are not intended to provide significant funds for original research.
- The Fellowship program makes available to qualified individuals a wide range of opportunities for research in several divisions of Harvard University; this is its unique and greatest virtue.
- Research areas include, for example, forest ecology, tree physiology, forest soils, forest resource management, conservation and biodiversity issues, environmental policy, industrial ecological issues and management processes, forest land planning and public policy.
