CNR Graduate Student Funding

The College of Natural Resources offers a series of resources to help graduate students succeed in their program of study.

The purpose of the Forest Biometrics Research Institute (FBRI) Doctoral Fellowship is to facilitate the education of forestry professionals toward an advanced understanding and application of forest biometric principals and methods. Fellows are expected to become proficient in nonparametric statistical methods as related to forestry and forest management technologies. FBRI supports and provides the Forest Projection & Planning System (FPS), which is the industry standard for managing forest ownerships. In addition to providing financial assistance, FBRI is offering access to a large database of field research installations and felled-tree measurements encompassing six western States and over two dozen tree species.

The FBRI Fellowship is a three-year commitment to the selected student. The student is expected to complete all coursework and a dissertation leading to a PhD in the three-year time frame. The candidate must hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Forest Management from an SAF-accredited forestry program and be operationally familiar with the silviculture and tree species of the western United States. The selected FBRI Fellow will join a larger cohort of Masters and Doctoral graduate students pursing advanced knowledge in the fields of Forest Biometrics and Silviculture. FBRI Students will be located in graduate student space within the College of Natural Resources. The FBRI Fellow’s doctoral committee will include one Ph.D. FBRI Biometrician.

FBRI Fellowship Funds Available: $20,800 research assistant stipend and coverage of resident fees* and student medical insurance for 3 years. The College of Natural Resources will provide each FBRI Fellow with $3,000 per year to cover research costs such as computer, field equipment, and travel.

* A full-time RA includes a waiver of non-resident fees.

Options and resources also exist for MS FBRI Fellows and for externally funded students to join in on the FBRI program. To learn more, please visit the program site.

Please apply to the Bipasesores’s College of Graduate Studies (COGS) via the standard application process:  Apply Now
Within your letter of application, please specifically highlight why you are interesting becoming a FBRI Fellow. Also on the CNR Area of Emphasis Form please write “FBRI Fellowship” where it asks you to highlight a CNR Faculty member you have been corresponding with.

Applications Due/Start Date: The FBRI Fellowship ideally begins with the start of the Fall Semester. The student is expected to select a dissertation research topic within the scope of the FBRI field of applied technologies (nonparametric methods, quantitative aspects of tree site capacity, tree form, or tree growth dynamics. 

Each semester, CNR expects to award up to two (2) Ph.D. Finishing Fellowships to support exceptional doctoral candidates. Candidates must have passed their preliminary examination and have fulfilled the requirements of their study plan at the time of receiving the award. The CNR Ph.D. Finishing Fellowship will provide full support (19.5 hr. TH stipend + tuition / fees for 1 credit + medical benefits, if needed) for one semester (spring, fall). Note: International students can seek a waiver from IPO to complete their last semester as part-time. Students can elect to have this fellowship paid over 1 or 2 semesters if used in conjunction with other sources of funding (such as an RA or TA). Please note that if you have a RA or TA appointment, COGS will require that your register for 9 credits that semester. As such, it is not recommended to combine the finishing fellowship with a RA/TA in the same semester. A Finishing Fellowship can only be held once.

Eligibility

  • GPA > 3.5 (must state GPA in statement)
  • Current Ph.D. students that have a CNR-based major or co-major professor. Co-major professor must be officially approved by COGS and reflected on Degree Audit.
  • Candidates must have passed their preliminary examination and have fulfilled the requirements of their study plan.

Each semester, the CNR expects to award several Graduate Travel Grants (up to $1500), Research Grants (up to $2500), and In-State Tuition Scholarships.

The Travel Grants are intended to support CNR graduate students to attend professional conferences or conduct fieldwork. All travel is limited to the USA. M.S. students can only receive the award once, while Ph.D students can only receive these awards a maximum of two times. Travel Grants will only be awarded if the student is presenting (talk or poster) their own data. The letter from the major professor should speak to the data requirement. Travel grants may be awarded to non-thesis Masters students (NR, ENVS, MNR, PSM) that are also presenting their own data at scientific conferences.

The Research Grants are intended for unexpected costs that were not budgeted (e.g., fieldwork, journal page charges, or sample analyses).

For Travel and Research Grants a budget with a half-page justification must be included with the statement or the application will not be reviewed.

In-State Tuition Scholarships are intended to support CNR graduate students that have received (or will receive) competitive funding scholarships where coverage of in-state tuition was not allowed. Preference will be given to students that have received funds from agencies that do not permit paying in-state tuition over awards that provide a lump sum, where fees could be paid in lieu of salary. These grants will be preferentially awarded to students that applied and received their own funding (ISGC awards, GRIN, etc.). Place-bound doctoral students may also be awarded these grants but must provide a statement of why they need to have in-state tuition covered.

Eligibility

  • GPA > 3.5 (must state GPA in statement).
  • Current M.S. or Ph.D. students within the College of Natural Resources (FWS, FRFS, NRS, or ENVS with CNR-based major professor or co-major professor). Co-major professor must be officially approved by COGS and reflected on Degree Audit.
  • Applicants may only apply for a single grant in this category.
  • Must be able to pass a criminal background check.

Application Procedures
