Fellowships of $5,000 to USA college students to analyze an eligible river system. Students will gather information about the river and perform scientific studies and public policy research. Students must be sponsored by an advisor to be eligible. One of the main goals of the program is to introduce and expose students to the research process. Programs must conduct research on the Hudson River.
The Tibor T. Polgar Fellowship program is a student research program of the Hudson River Foundation conducted in cooperation with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Named in honor of the late Dr. Tibor T. Polgar, a major participant in the early planning and development of the Foundation, this program provides a summer grant and research funds for up to eight students (undergraduate and graduate) to conduct research on the Hudson River.
Projects must be relevant to the Hudson River and Watershed and focused on topics related to the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of the River, or address social, economic, or public policy issues, including issues related to environmental justice.
HRF will prioritize projects that broaden participation from the Hudson River’s diverse student communities, and those that facilitate interactions with research mentors historically underrepresented in the environmental sciences.
Since 1985, the Polgar Fellowship program has produced a large body of research relevant to the Hudson River watershed, with a concentration on the four marshes of the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve (Stockport Flats, the Tivoli Bays, Iona Island Marsh, and Piermont Marsh), compiled in the annual Polgar Fellowship reports published by the Foundation. Anyone interested in obtaining this material in order to plan projects building on the work of previous Polgar fellowships or in discussing potential research topics should contact the Foundation.
