From 1995 to 2011, the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies received a series of grants from the Compton Foundation to support research by master’s and doctoral students from Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. The Compton International Fellowships facilitated graduate student research projects that focused on biodiversity conservation and sustainability in tropical countries, with linkages to the fields of peace and security (conflict management) and population and reproductive health.
The School of Forestry & Environmental Studies supported more than 60 Compton Fellows from 28 countries since 1995. Compton Fellows completed research projects on topics ranging from forest succession in Brazil’s Atlantic forest to community-based wildlife management in Kenya.

Please note: The Compton International Fellowship was phased out in the spring of 2011 and will not be offered in 2012.
