The partners of Second Century Stewardship: Science for America’s National Parks announce the availability of Research Fellowships to support research in Acadia National Park.
Second Century Stewardship—a collaboration among the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, and the National Park Service (NPS)—seeks to advance conservation and ecosystem science and support stewardship of park resources.
The Research Fellowships will include professional learning opportunities, including mentorship, training in science communication, and interaction with educators and resource managers. Each fellowship will include a cash award of up to $20,000, plus available research housing at Schoodic Institute, for projects to be completed within one to two years. Three research fellowships will be awarded early in 2017. Applications are due November 21, 2016.
These fellowships will provide an outstanding research and learning opportunity. Please share this announcement with researchers you know that may be interested in working in Acadia National Park. Visit the Second Century Stewardship website to apply and learn more about the Fellowship. There will also be an informational webinar on October 14, 2016. We strongly encourage interested researchers to attend the webinar.
