Summer Research Fellowships

The Kelly Adirondack Center funds two paid eight-week summer fellowships. The goal of the program is to support students doing scholarly work on the Adirondacks under the guidance of a faculty sponsor. Students are encouraged to explore topics supported by collections in the Adirondack Research Library. This range of inquiry is broad and ideally interdisciplinary. Potential subject areas include – but are not limited to – the history of environmental policy, management, or recreation in the region, Adirondack literature, or cartography.

Past subjects of study include land use and development, wilderness philosophy, Forest Ranger history, women Adirondack poets, access to healthcare in the Adirondacks, and Adirondack diversity.
