Donnelley and YIBS Postdoctoral Environmental Fellowships

Donnelley Postdoctoral Environmental Fellowship

The Donnelley Postdoctoral Fellowship supports postdoctoral fellowships for research in biodiversity or a combination of biodiversity with conservation and public policy. The Fellowship was created to honor the memory of Mr. Gaylord Donnelley, Yale Class of 1931, a conservationist dedicated to advances in research and education. The Fellowship, which was established by Mr. Donnelley’s widow, Dorothy and son Strachan, is funded by an endowment from the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation and the Donnelley Family and is administered by the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies (YIBS).
