  • Tabitha Graves, a doctoral candidate in the School of Forestry, was awarded an American Fellowship by the American Association of University Women. The fellowships are awarded to women scholars completing doctoral dissertations, conducting postdoctoral research or finishing research for publication. Graves is studying the spatial ecology of the largest population of grizzly bears in the continental United States, in the northern Rockies of Montana. The fellowship includes a $20,000 grant that will allow Graves to focus on her research that will help conserve grizzly bear and other wildlife populations. Information on the association’s 2011 awards is online.
