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.


Application procedure

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]> 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:
