Hrdy Fellowship

The Sarah and Daniel Hrdy Visiting Fellowship in Conservation Biology at Harvard University

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not conducting a search for an AY21-22 Hrdy Fellow. Please check for updates about the AY22-23 Hrdy Fellowsearch  in September 2021.

About the Award
The Sarah and Daniel Hrdy Fellowship in Conservation Biology serves to support the study of conservation biology within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University. The fellowship is awarded to an individual who will engage in scientific study and work in the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology. The fellowship commences with an annual lecture in conservation biology by the distinguished individual chosen for the fellowship from outside Harvard University. It is the hope of the benefactors that this fellowship will have a strong and transformative effect on the study of conservation biology at Harvard, from the undergraduate to the senior teaching level.
