The Green-Wood Research Fellowship Award in Urban Environmental Science provides support for emerging investigators to conduct original research that utilizes the landscape and collections of The Green-Wood Cemetery and Historic Fund to advance the study of urban ecology and/or climate resilience. Applications for the 2025 fellowship will open in late 2024.
