Berry Graduate Student Fellowships
Berry Graduate Student Fellowships are intended for outstanding students interested in pursuing a MS or PhD with an emphasis in ecology, evolution, and/or conservation. Applicants must have a faculty advisor from the Department of Zoology and Physiology. Students currently in a graduate program at UW are ineligible. The initial fellowship period is one year, renewable for up to a total of three years contingent on performance. Starting date is August 2014.
Berry Fellows will receive an annual stipend of $24,000 and a research fund of $5,000 per year. They will be eligible for UW benefits.
The applicant must first contact a faculty member in the Department of Zoology and Physiology to arrange sponsorship. Once an advisor is arranged, the applicant needs to submit, in a single PDF file:
- a cover letter including the name of their faculty sponsor,
- a two-page research interest and goals statement,
- a CV, and
- GRE scores.
Separately, applicants need to ensure that three letters of recommendation and a letter of support from their faculty sponsor are received by the Committee.
All materials should be sent to the Berry Fellowship Committee <cbenkman [at] uwyo.edu> by 10 January 2014. You will also need to apply to the Graduate Program in the Department of Zoology and Physiology. Refer to the following URL for applying: http://www.uwyo.edu/zoology/grad%5Fdegrees/apply_grad.html
