Margaret A. Davidson Graduate Fellowship - Applications due December 10, 2021

This two-year fellowship brings a graduate student to conduct research at the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve to address a key coastal management question. These questions help Hudson River communities understand coastal challenges and impacts to influence future policy and management strategies. The annual stipend for a Margaret A. Davidson fellow is $41,000 for research and travel, and an additional equipment and supply budget of approximately $7,000. Research being conducted at the Reserve is intended to be a substantial part of the fellow’s degree research, with at least 6 weeks must be spent at the Reserve each year. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the reserve to discuss their project ideas before applying. For more details, click here.
