Fund for Marine Science at Point Reyes National Seashore

APPLICATION DEADLINE: May 1, 2017  ANNOUNCEMENT OF AWARDS: May 15, 2017

The Fund for Marine Science was established in 2012 by an anonymous donation recognizing the conservation legacy of Donald L. Neubacher, former National Park Service superintendent at Point Reyes National Seashore. The purpose of the Fund is to foster basic and applied marine research in and around Point Reyes National Seashore.

The Fund supports annual requests of up to $3,000 for marine research conducted in the immediate vicinity of Point Reyes National Seashore and Tomales Bay (Between Bolinas and Tomales Point and up to 5 km from shore). Graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty, and other professional scientists are eligible to apply. Studies that strive to understand long-term changes and patterns in marine and estuarine ecosystems are encouraged. A committee composed of staff from the Point Reyes National Seashore Association and Point Reyes National Seashore reviews applications and selects grant recipients. The committee anticipates awarding two grants in 2017.
