ROSENBERRY GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP

Walter S. Rosenberry (1931-2005), a long-time supporter and Forest History Society Board member, provided the Society’s first endowment in support of its awards program. Rosenberry received a B.A. degree in History from Harvard University, graduating magna cum laude in 1953. He taught English and history at the Kent Denver School from 1959 to 1981. In addition to his career in teaching, Rosenberry was known widely for his community service and philanthropy. The fellowship provides a stipend to support the doctoral research of a graduate student attending a university in North America whose research contributes to forest and conservation history.

Fellowship Details

Offered by the Forest History Society, the Walter S. Rosenberry Fellowship provides a $15,000 stipend to support the doctoral research of a graduate student attending a university in North America and whose research contributes to forest and conservation history. Research focus on the historic relationships between humans, forests, and related resources is required. The fellowship recipient will also be eligible for a $1,000 travel allowance that will be considered upon documentation of the student having a paper accepted at a professional conference.

The recipient is selected on the basis of merit: proposals are judged in terms of overall significance, achievability, quality of presentation, academic record, and relevance to forest history.
