Boyd Evison Graduate Fellowship
The Evison Fellowship was established in memory of Boyd Evison after his death in October, 2002, and created to honor Boyd's extensive and dedicated service to both the National Park Service (NPS) and Grand Teton Association.
Boyd's vision was to establish baseline information on the biodiversity and natural conditions of the Greater Yellowstone Region. This information would ultimately serve as a reference point for all future research in the area and would help shape wise management decisions.
Evison Fellowships provide tuition assistance and a yearly stipend to cover travel and field research costs to graduate students. The goal of the fellowship is to encourage scientific and conservation-related research in national parks. It invites highly motivated, graduate students to conduct research within Grand Teton and the Greater Yellowstone Area.
Your support is vital for wildlife protection in the Tetons. Ever-increasing habitat threats and expanding human impacts put the health and diversity of the local wildlife at risk. As conflicts increase, biologists study how predators relate to people and other species that share the same territory. Ultimately, this information will provide a clear picture of the changing ecosystem and will assist with projects that benefit wildlife, preserve critical habitat, and address human needs.
Your donations will assist with critical monitoring, by providing specialized equipment and other resources needed to study wildlife.
