Overview:

The Hixon Center for Urban Ecology wishes to build research relationships with FES students who are interested in urban ecology. Student Research Fellows are chosen from a pool of competitive applicants based on their research proposal’s connection to current Hixon Center research, the outreach potential of that research and to advance knowledge of urban ecosystems.

Five grant awards ranging from $5,000 - $7,000 are available to Yale FES students interested in conducting natural and social science research, education & outreach projects for the following topic areas:

  • Urban ecosystem restoration
  • Urban forestry and forestry across an urban-rural gradient
  • Projects related to pollution of air, water and soil in cities.

Additional funding is available for one student to conduct research with the NYC Urban Field Station (see further details here of this research fellowship sponsored jointly by NYC Urban Field Station and the Hixon Center).
