It is no secret that, to succeed, natural resource management must be sensitive to local cultural and social needs and realities. Over the last ten years, Community Forestry & Environmental Research Partnerships has funded 91 fellowships for graduate students doing just that.
“The CFERP program gives those of us in the field the necessary monetary and infrastructural support that we need to turn participatory research into a reality that actually makes a difference in people's lives. What a revolutionary concept: research done in the name of helping people and the environment.” -- Stephanie Lynn Gripne, Research Fellow, Boone and Crockett Wildlife Conservation Program, School of Forestry, University of Montana, Missoula
