The 2021 Hudson River Fund Proposal Deadline has passed.
The Foundation seeks to elucidate the dynamic interactions among the biological, chemical, physical and human processes that are important to the Hudson River ecosystem. In particular, the Foundation encourages research in areas that are both scientifically important and relevant to current or anticipated public policy and resource management issues affecting the River and its watershed. This year’s Call for Proposals will focus on identifying a limited number of projects that reflect the Foundation’s interest in innovative approaches to understanding current and emerging issues for the Hudson River Estuary and Watershed. We are particularly interested in projects that:
- Provide focused outcomes and serve as a catalyst for additional research;
- Synthesize existing data, especially social and biophysical information that is relevant to understanding how social, economic, and natural systems are coupled in the Hudson River ecosystem;
- Complete and/or advance ongoing projects to achieve more innovative or comprehensive outcomes, particularly those that can inform policy and decision making and;
- Provide opportunities for partnerships with the Foundation that can lead to productive engagement with decisionmakers from communities who can benefit from the results of research.
The Foundation encourages those who have not received funding from the Foundation previously and researchers from the social and behavioral sciences to consider this opportunity. In addition, we are particularly interested in applications from postdoctoral fellows and early career researchers who are within five years post-completion of postdoctoral or graduate studies.
Please consult the 2021 Call for Proposals for further details.
