Enabling innovative science research opportunities in national parks.

In partnership with the National Park Service, the National Park Foundation (NPF) is bringing a science fellowship program to life for postdocs.

NPF Science Fellowships are sought-after opportunities to conduct innovative science research that help the National Park Service address resource management challenges.

From researching a science-based balance between recreation and healthy natural areas, to studying the role of mesophotic coral reef systems, to assessing how collaborative conservation can help ensure metapopulation resilience, the science fellows provide critical insights to the national parks community.

This pilot program is made possible by the National Park Foundation with generous support from Karen Swett Conway and Brian J. Conway.
