Land Trust Alliance - Request for Proposals for Research in Support of History of Public and Private Land Conservation Curriculum

Purpose and Scope of Work

The Land Trust Alliance seeks a consultant to conduct a national survey of conservation organizations, universities, government agencies, tribal partners and other organizations and individuals to identify existing resources and training opportunities on the history of land conservation the Alliance can direct its members to. This survey must be national in scope with results organized by region as appropriate. We believe that while the history has commonalities across the country, there are distinct differences among regions. We expect the consultant to identify resources covering land loss among the Indigenous, African Americans, Mexican Americans, Chinese Americans, Japanese Americans, LGBTQ, women and other marginalized groups not identified here. The consultant should look for free resources and those that require a fee. While we don’t expect the consultant to assess the quality of the resources, we do expect them to include only content from reputable sources. From this survey, the consultant will identify gaps in knowledge and resources.


  • Draft findings and recommendations for Alliance review
  • Final report with recommendations
  • Presentation to Alliance staff (potentially)

Linda Hall Library, 2021-22 Virtual Fellowships

The Linda Hall Library is now accepting applications for its 2021-22 fellowship program. These fellowships provide graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and independent scholars in the history of science and related STS fields with financial support to explore the Library’s outstanding science and engineering collections. Due to the public health risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic, all Linda Hall Library fellowships during the 2021-22 academic year will be virtual. Instead of traveling to Kansas City, virtual fellows will conduct research from off-site using digitized resources in the Library’s collections. These virtual fellowships reflect the Library’s ongoing efforts to expand the accessibility of its holdings while protecting the safety of both patrons and staff. Fellowship funding is offered at a rate of $3,000 per month for doctoral students and $4,200 per month for postdoctoral researchers.

All application materials are due no later than January 15, 2021. For further information, visit or e-mail
