The Forest History Society is pleased to offer the Walter S. Rosenberry Fellowship for the 2021-2022 academic year. The fellowship is a $15,000 stipend to support the doctoral research of a graduate student attending a university in North America and whose research contributes to forest and conservation history regardless of geographic focus. Research focus on the historic relationships between humans, forests, and related resources is required. Among the diverse topics that fall under the umbrella of the fellowship are forest landscape change and history, invasive species, forest and ecosystem management, forest policy and institutions, resource-dependent communities, private land ownership, science and technology developments, and sustainability.

The deadline is March 15, 2021. The recipient is selected on the basis of merit: proposals are judged in terms of overall significance, achievability, quality of presentation, academic record, and relevance to forest history. The winner will be announced in mid-May 2021.
