The two-year Margaret A. Davidson fellowship brings a graduate student to conduct research at the Hudson National Estuarine Research Reserve (HRNERR) 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. At least 6 weeks must be spent at the Reserve each year.
Applications are due December 10, 2021. You are encouraged to use the time between now and then to develop your student project plans around the four HRNERR Davidson Research Priorities described at the link below. Feel free to contact the HRNERR staff member listed under each priority for more information.
You must be accepted to a university program before you can be awarded the Fellowship.
