During summer 2020, Western Resources Fellows with UHPSI completed research, an internship, or a project related to conservation, stewardship, or management of natural resources in the western United States. Much of their work is self-directed, however fellows often collaborate closely with Yale faculty and staff and western conservation partners in order to contribute to ongoing research and conservation efforts in the West. 

Are you a western conservation collaborator?
If you are interested in having a student possibly work on a project or effort for summer 2021 to facilitate conservation and stewardship of the West, then please email to discuss more.
