Qualifications for the Charles Bullard Fellowship in Forest Research

Bullard Fellowships are typically awarded to mid-career individuals who have established themselves in academia, public service, or private enterprise. PhDs are usually preferred for those with an academic background, but studies and research at Harvard could boost that promise, so the project would make a more significant contribution to forestry and forestry science more broadly. Others who have committed to it will be considered.

Fields of Research

Research areas include forest ecology, tree physiology, soil biogeochemistry and microbial ecology, forest resource management, conservation and biodiversity, land use planning and public policy. Occasionally grants are awarded in the arts and environmental sciences.

Financial Benefits of Charles Bullard Fellowship in Forest Research

Fellowships provide scholarships of up to $75,000; the amount of each award depends on the duration of the fellowship. Members have the option of having the reward paid to themselves or to the member’s employer.

Visiting Fellowships Each Bullard Fellow will receive travel funding equal to the price of one roundtrip flight from their home base to the Fellowship site. The fellowship will reflect the lower of the actual airfare or mileage (calculated at an IRS-determined rate) between the two. Bullards shall pay the expenses of anyone accompanying them.

Fellowship Location

The Bullard Fellowship is a residential program and fellows are expected to spend a substantial portion of their fellowship either at Harvard Forest in Petersham, Massachusetts, or at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Bullards who expect to spend more than a week or two traveling during their fellowship should include details in their application.
