Francis J. Bossuyt Fellowship - The fellowship was created as a memorial to the life of Francis Bossuyt (1969-2000). At the time of his untimely death, Francis had been collecting his final year of data for his dissertation on Titi monkeys at the Cocha Cashu Biological Station in Manu National Park in Peru. In recognizing Francis' love for the Titi Monkeys and for field-oriented research, the Bossuyt family established this endowed fellowship.
