Second Century Stewardship Research Fellowships

Second Century Stewardship Fellowships support research in Acadia National Park and across the National Park System. Founded in 2016 as a public-private partnership led by Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park and the National Park Service, 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 Second Century Stewardship partners are pleased to issue the Request for Proposals for 2023 fellowships. The application portal for 2023 fellowships opens September 1, 2022 and the proposal deadline is October 27, 2022.

Proposals on a wide variety of topics are invited, but research must address priority research management issues in Acadia, such as climate change adaptation. Proposals for research that includes multiple national park units are encouraged.
