Doctoral Fellowship

Individuals starting a doctoral program in park and conservation management are eligible to be selected as a Hartzog Fellow in Park Resources Management. Fellowships are for one year, supplement departmental graduate assistantships, and are typically awarded every other year, based on availability of funding. Hartzog Fellows will work with park resource faculty on grants from park agencies and assist the department in conducting annual Hartzog events.

Students from related fields are encouraged to apply. Applicants should contact a professor in the Department of Parks Recreation and Tourism Management who share their interests. Faculty interests can be viewed at http://www.clemson.edu/hehd/departments/prtm/aboutus/faculty.html.
