John V. Krutilla Research Stipend

Resources for the Future (RFF) will award one research grant for the 2011–2012 academic year in honor of the late John V. Krutilla, a renowned environmental economist who served as a senior fellow at RFF for most of his career.

The grant is intended for young scholars who have been awarded a doctoral degree in the past five years. The focus of the award is research related to environmental and resource economics. Special attention will be given to applications that seek to pursue research into one or more of the areas
pioneered by John Krutilla. The awardee may be invited to present the results of the research activities at RFF in the year after completion of the work. The Krutilla research award was established with the generous support of the Krutilla family, Industrial Economics, Inc., and a number of John’s colleagues, friends, and former “students.”

Eligibility: The award is open to young scholars who have received their doctoral degrees since June 30, 2006.

Duration: The Krutilla research award is intended for one year.

One award for $5,500 will be made each year. It can be used for summer salary support, to pay for research assistance, or for any other legitimate research expenses. A committee chaired by V. Kerry Smith and including Gardner M. Brown, Catherine Kling, Spencer Banzhaf, Raymond J. Kopp, and Roberton Williams will review all proposals.
