The Ronald F. Labisky Graduate Fellowship in Wildlife Policy was created in 2021 through the generosity of Ronald F. Labisky. This graduate-level fellowship encourages early career wildlife scholars to understand, formulate and recommend wildlife policy on critical conservation issues and further encourages these wildlife scholars to pursue careers advancing wildlife policy issues.

“Policy” is defined as a “definite course or method of action selected from among alternatives and in light of given conditions to guide and determine present and future decisions.”

This Fellowship is intended to supplement other financial support that may be obtained by the selected recipient. Selected fellows will receive $10,000 or that amount deemed appropriate by the Selection Committee based on economic conditions and the earnings of the Fellowship Fund.

The first fellowship will be announced during The Wildlife Society’s Annual Conference in 2022.
