Overview:

Glacier National Park Conservancy – Jerry O'Neal Research Fellowship.

The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center, in collaboration with the Rocky Mountain CESU and support from the Glacier National Park Conservancy (GNPC), created the Glacier National Park Conservancy—Jerry O’Neal Research Fellowship to promote research in Glacier National Park, Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site, and Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. Applicants must be a student from a Rocky Mountain CESU member college or university.

Jerry O’Neal was a former deputy superintendent of Glacier National Park who was actively engaged in a range of environmental management projects and was a key park official during the wildfires of 2003. Jerry was a scientist, poet, and writer. He had a deep love of nature, and was an outspoken proponent for using sound science to support resource management decisions.

The fellowship aims to provide educational assistance for students seeking to understand natural and cultural resource issues and how these intersect with human values at Glacier National Park, Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site, or Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument.

Special consideration will be given to proposals that address the following:

  • Natural resource issues such as aquatic ecology, terrestrial ecology, fire ecology, invasive plants, and climate change.
  • Cultural resource issues, such as history and architectural studies, cultural landscape reports, archeology, and ethnographic research.
  • Social science that informs resource management about a natural or cultural topic and/or that addresses visitor impacts to park resources.
