Lawry Land Ethic Distinguished Graduate Fellowship

Aldo Leopold’s land ethic taught us that human beings are an integral part of the environment, and gain physical, economic and spiritual sustenance from it. Modern humanity has demonstrated the capacity to change the functioning of earth systems in far-reaching ways. The Lawry Land Ethic Fellowship supports students who are ready to take responsibility, through critical integration of aspects of ecology, ethics and culture, for advancing our capacity for effective stewardship of the environment.

It was made possible by a gift from Steven Lawry, an alumnus of the Nelson Institute, and matching funds from the Wisconsin Distinguished Graduate Fellowship Program.
