2014-2015 Bullard Recipients
Harvard Forest is pleased to announce the 2014-2015 Charles Bullard Fellows in Forest Research. The purpose of this Fellowship program, established in 1962, is to support advanced research and study by persons who show promise of making important contributions, either as scholars or administrators, to forestry defined in its broadest sense as the human use and study of forested environments.
This year's Bullard Fellows were selected from a large pool of international applicants and cover a broad array of forest-related subjects. These six distinguished practitioners and academics from across the United States and the globe will spend one to two semesters conducting research based in Cambridge, Mass., or at the Harvard Forest in Petersham. Fellows are supported by an endowment named after the benefactor Charles Bullard. While in residence at Harvard, Fellows interact with faculty and students, give seminars, participate in conferences and symposia and avail themselves of the University's great research resources. Applications will be accepted beginning October 1, 2014 for Bullard Fellowships during 2015-2016.
"The Harvard community benefits immensely from the presence of the outstanding scholars and fellows supported by the Bullard program," says David R. Foster, director of Harvard Forest and chair of the Bullard Fellowship committee. "The breadth of research encompassed by this year's class of scholars is vast, ranging from sustainable forest management to computer science, from cell biology to reconstructions of past environmental change."
