Research to impact our shared knowledge and lands

Students with interests in environmental affairs may benefit from one of our research fellowships on the topics of environmental conservation and historic landscape restoration, designed to build experience through hands-on guidance from professionals working in the field.

Our Fellowships


Our Conservation Fellowships support research in conservation and environmental studies that directly impacts the Commonwealth of Virginia. Topics may include flora, fauna, or community practices. There are conservation fellowships available at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

Landscape Restoration Fellowships

Students who study landscape design may benefit from our Landscape Restoration Fellowships, designed for graduate students working towards a master’s in landscape architecture (MLA) or equivalent degree. These fellowships give students hands-on guidance from landscape architects, and typically take place over the summer.
