Charles Bullard Fellowship Programme In Forest Research
The Charles Bullard fellowship program supports advanced research and study by individuals who show promise of making an important contribution, either as scholars or administrators, to forestry and forest-related subjects including biology, earth sciences, economics, politics, administration, philosophy, humanities, the arts, or law.
The fellowship is a highly competitive program that only accepts 5 to 7 recipients a year from a large applicant pool. View the listing of past fellowship recipients or learn more about this year’s Bullard Fellows.

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 Forest 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.
Research areas include forest ecology, tree physiology, soil biogeochemistry and microbial ecology, forest resource management, conservation and biodiversity, land use planning, and public policy. Fellowships are occasionally awarded in the arts and environmental humanities. Please note that proposals in the arts and humanities must demonstrate a strong connection to the research at Harvard Forest.
A major goal of the Bullard Fellowship program is to enhance research activities at Harvard Forest and build long-term collaborations that connect Harvard Forest with other parts of the University. Fellows can be based at the Harvard Forest or associated with other departments and centers at Harvard University. Potential fellows are encouraged to contact appropriate Harvard collaborators well in advance of the application deadline.
Previous Fellows have collaborated with researchers and faculty at:
- Harvard Forest, Petersham
- Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain
- Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences
- Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology
- Harvard Business School
- Harvard Graduate School of Design
- Harvard Kennedy School of Government
- Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE)
- or a combination of these research institutions
The Fellowships carry stipends up to $60,000; the amount of each award depends on 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.
