Trevor Price, COSAS member and Professor of Ecology and Evolution has been awarded a Fulbright-Kalam Climate Fellowship for Academic and Professional Excellence to continue his studies on the effects of climate change on the biodiversity of India.
The Fulbright-Kalam awards are climate fellowships for academic and professional excellence from Fulbright India and “aim to provide faculty, researchers, and professionals the opportunity to teach, conduct research, or carry out a combination of teaching and research at an institution. These fellowships are for four to nine months.”
Professor Price says he will conduct his research over three trips: January and February 2024, May through July 2024, and May through July 2025. His host will be the Wildlife Institute of India in Dehradun. His trip will include field research in Andhra, Maharashtra, Himachal and Ladakh, as well as week-long visits to four IISERs (Tirupathi, Pune, Bhopal, Mohali), plus 10 days at the University of Ladakh in both 2024 and 2025, where he is officially a visiting professor. The time at the institutions will include both seminars and workshops, as well as learning about ongoing research into climate change issues in India. It will be coupled with a meeting at the University of Chicago’s Center in Delhi in July 2024.
Congratulations, Professor Price, on this award!
