At the dawn of the U.S. National Park Service's second century, opportunities exist to engage in science for the benefit of parks and society. Second Century Stewardship explores that science through partnerships with AAAS, Acadia National Park, Schoodic Institute, and the National Park Service.
Research Fellows will advance science to support park stewardship, strengthen public engagement with science, and highlight the value of parks for science and science for parks.
An overview of Second Century Stewardship, the Research Fellowship, the application process, and park research priorities was held on September 13, 2017. A recording will be available at the Second Century Stewardship website. We strongly recommend that you review the webinar before completing your application.
All application components and guidelines are listed in the Second Century Stewardship Research Fellowship RFP (PDF).
