TRI’s Endowed Fellowship Program provides funding for currently enrolled F&ES (Yale School Forestry & Environmental Studies) masters and doctoral students to conduct research in tropical countries. These projects are interdisciplinary in nature and cover a wide range of issues that surround the study, management, and conservation of tropical resources. TRI supports both natural and social science research projects.
Awards range from $1,500 to $5,000 and approx. 20-30 awards are granted each cycle. The award process is managed by Simon Queenborough.
Funding from the TRI Endowment Fellowship may only be used to cover expenses associated with summer research projects and is not available to cover any preliminary expenses – including mid-year travel to field sites – incurred by students in the development of their individual projects. Nor are TRI funds available for travel during the academic year to meetings, etc.
Additional fellowships are available that are dedicated to particular tropical regions.
