About PERC

All Areas of Focus

All Research



Through PERC’s programs, we explore how aligning incentives for environmental stewardship produces sustainable outcomes for land, water, and wildlife. Through fellowships, workshops, seminars, and mentoring, we open our doors to a diversity of interests to foster deep exploration of resource problems and creative solutions.



Conducting quality research is at the core of PERC’s mission. Through our fellowships, PERC invites scholars, law, and graduate students to spend time at our headquarters in Bozeman, Montana, working on a research project addressing a pressing environmental challenge.
