The Ely Wolf Center is investing in the next generation of wildlife biologists.

As an investment in the future of wolf research and science-based wolf education, the Center will award two fellowships in the spring of 2022.

“As an organization founded by one of the world’s pre-eminent wildlife biologists, we believe that continued investment in scientific discovery about wolves and other wildlife will help build a future where wolves and humans can coexist and thrive,” said Grant Spickelmier, the Center’s executive director. “We also understand that many barriers exist for students and early career researchers and hope these fellowships can be useful tools for opening up access to people pursuing a wildlife biology career.”

Recent graduates or current college students planning to pursue a career in wildlife biology are eligible to enter.

This support will also cover costs to allow the fellowship recipients to attend the 2022 International Wolf Symposium, scheduled for Oct. 13-16 in Minneapolis where they will be asked to present a poster on their work.

The money will help the winners support their field research expenses.

The winners will be announced in early 2022.

Applications for this fellowship are due on December 15, 2021.

They may create their own project or use the fellowship to support their participation as a volunteer or intern for an established research effort.
