The Fellowship

The Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Fellowship in Environmental Studies provides an opportunity to bring world-recognized environmental scholars, activists, writers, and leaders to Colby College to engage the campus and community in lectures and discussions around important environment themes. Each year, the Environmental Studies Program at Colby honors one Distinguished Fellow, whose work bridges science and policy to make substantial advances in environmental conservation and sustainability.
