Cross Ranch Fellowship applications requested

Published: 26 April 2011

Applications for the Robert H. Levis II Cross Ranch Fellowship are being accepted until May 11. The one-year award of approximately $3,800 will be given to a first- or second-year graduate student on the basis of academic record; commitment to botany, range management or a closely related aspect of natural resources management; and an interview with the faculty selection committee.

The fellowship is supported by an endowment that originated as a donation from Levis to the NDSU Development Foundation. It was later enhanced by a gift from the Gladys Allen Trust of St. Louis, given by Allen in memory of Levis, her late husband.

Located near the Missouri River west of Washburn, N.D., the well-known Cross Ranch was owned by the Levis family and is now managed by The Nature Conservancy as a significant natural area in western North Dakota.

The fellowship can be used as a stipend for the recipient or in support of graduate research expenses. Eligible students should write a letter of application, giving a concise description of their research and how receiving this fellowship would advance their research. A brief letter of support from the student’s research adviser also should be sent to the committee.

Applications, recommendations and a copy of all pertinent transcripts, can be sent to Ted Esslinger, chair of the Cross Ranch Fellowship Selection Committee, NDSU Department of Biological Sciences, Stevens Hall 218.
