The Gilman Ordway Family Scholarship Fund for Environmental Studies (1991) Financial aid is an important focus of donor support in all aspects of Yale’s cur- riculum. Gilman Ordway ( b.a. 1947) established the Gilman Ordway Family Scholarship Fund for Environmental Studies to provide annual support for up to seven graduate students for studies in the environmental sciences. Mr. Ordway is known for his support for environmental causes around the globe, and has had a long association with Yale. He was one of the early donors to Kroon Hall, the new home of f & es , which opened in May 2009, and the Ordway Learning Center at Kroon Hall is named for him. Endowed Support for Environmental Studies 8 Gi ord Pinchot ( b.a. 1889), first chief of the U.S. Forest Service, was instrumental in founding Yale’s Forest School in 1900 and launching studies in conservation and the environment at Yale. In 1972 the School became the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. Edward P. Bass (1967, b.s. 1968) helped Yale to build on its strong foundations in environmental sciences when he established the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies in 1990. The multidisciplinary center encourages interaction among Yale’s science departments as well as the Peabody Museum of Natural History and f & es .

The Gaylord Donnelley Environmental Fellows Fund (1994) The Gaylord Donnelley Fund for Studies in the Environment (1994) The Strachan and Vivian Donnelley Endowed Scholarship Fund (2002) The Cameron and Gus Speth Scholarship Fund (2007) Throughout the past twenty years, noted Chicago environmentalist Gaylord Donnelley ( b.a. 1931) and his family have been exceptionally generous to the Uni- versity. The Gaylord Donnelley Environ- mental Fellows Fund provides postdoctoral research fellowships in disciplines related to the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies. Through the Gaylord Donnelley Fund for Studies in the Environment, the family underwrote colloquia, special courses, pub- lic addresses, and other programs to enrich undergraduate life. In 2002 Mr. Donnelley’s son, Strachan Donnelley ( b.a. 1964), created the Strachan and Vivian Donnelley Endowed Scholarship Fund for financial aid “to support Yale’s e orts in building environmental leadership.” In 2007 a com- mitment from Strachan Donnelley, now deceased, created the Cameron and Gus Speth Scholarship Fund, to which many others have also contributed, in honor of the retiring Dean, James Gustave Speth ( b.a. 1964, ll.b. 1969). The donors announced their intention “to honor Dean Speth’s commitment to the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies gener- ally and to scholarship in particular.” The Speth Scholarship Fund will provide finan- cial aid for master’s students, either U.S. or international, with demonstrated financial need, at f & es . Gustave Speth was Dean of f & es from 1999 to 2009, and was a class- mate of Strachan Donnelley at Yale College.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
