My winning proposal: Seeing the wood for the trees at Harvard

Harvard Forest’s Charles Bullard Fellowship supports a sabbatical for mid-career professionals in any discipline looking to develop a piece of work related to forestry or forest studies. Antoaneta Roussi hears from Duncan Stone about his win.

 Duncan’s top tips

  • The scheme is not primarily for full-time researchers, so if you haven’t been able to dedicate yourself to research for a while, don’t count yourself out.
  • The idea you present should be dear to your heart because it will be your unique focus for up to a year if you win.
  • Harvard Forest favours bold thinking in its applications as it is looking for fresh perspectives to stimulate intellectual life there. 

Harvard Forest is “Harvard University’s 4,000 acre laboratory and classroom” and a centre for long-term ecological research.
