Hunt Postdoctoral Fellowship


On February 8, 2023 the Foundation started using a new portal link for submitting final reporting requirements.  If you received your Award Notice email with your final reporting instructions prior to that date, you may email your Final Reports directly to Mark Ropelewski at as originally instructed. Otherwise, please use the information and link provided in your award notice. We will review your report and notify you when your fellowship is complete.  If a week goes by and you still haven’t heard from us, please contact the Foundation to check on the status of your award. Be sure to update all contact information (mailing address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address, etc.) when you send the final report.

We welcome photographs that capture the spirit of your project.  Please only send us images that are ethically sourced. See Wenner-Gren’s Standards of Practice for Photographs and Videos. We would be grateful if you would submit the written part of your report in file formats compatible with Microsoft Word or Excel 2010. If you have any questions, please email Mark Ropelewski at

Final Report

The final report should summarize your accomplishments during the fellowship period. If your work has already been published, please give full bibliographic details and forward copies to the Foundation by mail. Your name, address, and fellowship number must appear on the first page of the final report. [Limit: 1500 words]


Your abstract should summarize your final report.  We will post it on the Foundation’s website.  Please do your best to write in a style that is clearly understandable to a non-specialist.  Use the third person.  Discuss the academic content of the writing you undertook and provide bibliographic details if the work has already been published.  [Limit: 200 words]

Please submit these documents upon the completion of your fellowship.  If you fail to do so and can’t offer a good excuse for the delay, we will designate your award “closed-incomplete,” and you will become ineligible for further support from the Foundation.
