Henry L. and Grace Doherty Coastal Studies Research Fellowship

Established in 1999 with a gift from the Henry L. and Grace Doherty Charitable Foundation Coastal Studies Research Fund, the Doherty Fund supports student research in marine and coastal studies.

First-years, sophomores, and juniors may apply. Current seniors are ineligible.

The Doherty Coastal Studies Fellowship carries a $3,200 stipend. Summer fellows agree to commit eight weeks full-time toward the completion of their proposed projects and to refrain from employment during their period of appointment. Academic year fellows agree to carry out their project on a part-time basis over two semesters (i.e., effort approximately equivalent to that of summer fellow).

If requested and approved during the application process, summer and academic year fellows may also be reimbursed for up to $500 for justified research related expenses (e.g., laboratory/art supplies, analytical costs, and travel beyond the local area to conduct field work or to visit an archive).

Should a faculty mentor feel that a fellow is not making sufficient progress toward the research goals set forth in the fellow's proposal, the College reserves the right to discontinue funding.
