About this funder:
Lynn Weyerhaeuser Day (1932-1999) and her husband Stanley R. Day (1925-2002) endowed the Society's Frederick K. Weyerhaeuser Forest History Fellowship in 1986 to honor the memory of Lynn's father, F. K. Weyerhaeuser (1895-1978), to support FHS programs, and to strengthen the Society's affiliation with Duke University.
The fellowship consists of an $11,000 stipend, distributed quarterly, to support the research of a Duke University graduate student whose research examines in some way forest and conservation history. The recipient is selected on the basis of merit; proposals are judged in terms of overall significance and quality of presentation. The project must be historical in nature and treat land use, forestry, or the environment in some general way. Examples of acceptable topics include:
- general changes in a forest ecosystem caused by natural or human intervention;
- environmental change resulting from the introduction of a nonnative tree or plant species;
- the evolution of policies or practices relating to natural resource use or management;
- the historical development of resource-dependent communities;
- changes in science or technology affecting forestry, natural resource conservation, or environmental management
