Wyss Scholars Program Supports Future Western Conservation Leaders at Yale
The Wyss Foundation, a charitable organization that supports land conservation in the American West, has selected three Yale students as 2019 Wyss Scholars — Eve Barnett ’20 M.E.M., Julia Sullivan ’20 M.E.M., and Kelly McClure ’21 J.D.
The Wyss Scholars Program supports graduate-level education for the next generation of leaders in western land conservation. The recipients will receive tuition, internships, and post-graduate support as part of the program.
This year’s scholars were recognized for their leadership potential and devotion to land conservation in the western United States.
Wyss Scholars are engaged in a variety of issues including land conservation and stewardship, environmental policy, field ecology, fire science and management, and forestry. They are working for nonprofit organizations like The Nature Conservancy and for governmental organizations like the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Forest Service, and the National Park Service.
