SLC Fellowship Logo 2015

In 2006 the National Park Service established the Crater Lake Science and Learning Center (SLC) to expand research and educational programs and to promote technology to aid park management. The Center is operated through a partnership between the National Park Service, Oregon Institute of Technology and Southern Oregon University and is funded through an endowment from the Oregon Community Foundation.

In 2015 the Crater Lake Science and Learning Center will offer up to four fellowships to support undergraduate or graduate student investigations. Each fellowship may be funded up to $4,000.

Who is eligible?
Senior undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program at a college or university are eligible to apply. Research Fellows must be self-directed individuals, have a dedicated faculty advisor in the field of the proposed research, and propose research that will contribute to issues of management concern at Crater Lake National Park. A Fellow must be able to complete the proposed project within one year from receipt of the fellowship award.
