National Park Foundation Science Fellowships

Congratulations & Welcome to our Science Fellows!

The National Park Foundation Science Fellowships, previously called the Conway Science Fellowship, is funded through the generous support of Karen Swett Conway, National Park Foundation Board of Directors, and her husband Brian Conway. These fellowships are an opportunity for postdoc fellows to conduct innovative science research that can help inform management actions of the National Park Service.

After reviewing many impressive proposals, three teams consisting of a faculty mentor and a postdoc fellow have been selected. Each team will focus on a different topical area that addresses one of the following resource management challenges:

  1. Addressing increasing visitor use by integrating social science and resource stewardship
  2. Enhancing ocean and coastal resource stewardship
  3. Embracing collaborative conservation at the landscape scale.
