Mulholland Endowment Challenge

Patrick J. Mulholland Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Environmental Sciences Endowment Challenge

Friends and colleagues of Pat Mulholland have an opportunity to double the impact of their contributions in support of the Pat Mulholland Post-Doctoral Endowed Fellowship. A donor has generously pledged to give up to $10,000 in this challenge match donation. Any contributions we make that exceed this $10,000 challenge also will be placed in the Mulholland Endowment Fund.

Throughout his career, Dr. Patrick Mulholland was a strong advocate for early career scientists as well as for collaboration between University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). In recognition of Dr. Mulholland’s efforts, this endowment will support a postdoctoral fellow for one to three years to conduct collaborative research in ecology or environmental sciences, focusing on pressing environmental issues related to global change, with faculty in the Ecology and Environmental Biology Department (UT) and staff scientists at ORNL. For more information about Pat Mulholland, please read the Mulholland Endowment Article from page 2 of the 2012 EEB Newsletter.
