YIBS supports fellowship opportunities such as the Gaylord Donnelley Postdoctoral Environmental Fellowship, which funds postdoctoral positions for research in biodiversity or a combination of biodiversity with public policy and conservation, and the Hutchinson Fellowship, of which information is due to be published here soon.

YIBS also brings premier scholars in any environmentally-related field to Yale for an extended period of time through its Edward P. Bass Distinguished Visiting Environmental Scholars Program

Additionally, YIBS offers graduate student support to the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, and to the Yale Departments of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Environmental Engineering, and Geology & Geophysics. YIBS also provides small grants for research affiliated with a wide range of Yale departments.
