Second Century Stewardship: Science for America’s National Parks Research Fellowship

Second Century Stewardship: Science for America’s National Parks Research Fellowships support research in Acadia National Park. Founded in 2016 as a public-private partnership led by Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, the National Park Service, and the National Park Foundation, with generous support from the David Evans Shaw Family Foundation, Second Century Stewardship seeks to advance conservation and ecosystem science and support stewardship of park resources. Research Fellows contribute to strengthening and broadening public understanding of the importance of science for parks and society.

The application portal for 2023 fellowships will open in late spring 2022 and the proposal deadline is October 31, 2022.

For more information, see last year’s Request for Proposals as we do not anticipate major changes.

The webinar recording below provides an overview of Second Century Stewardship, the Research Fellowship, the application process, and park research priorities offered on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 3 p.m.
