Summary
The Kleinhans Fellowship supports research to better understand and improve the impacts of non-timber forest product (NTFP) harvest and marketing on rural livelihoods and tropical forest ecosystems.

Examples of potential research topics include:

The Fellow will be expected to submit quarterly progress reports throughout the duration of the fellowship, and a paper suitable for publication in a peer-reviewed journal when the fellowship is completed. Fellows are also expected to summarize and disseminate project results in the local language to communities in and around the study area.
