Loewy Research Fellowships
In 2005, the Loewy Family Foundation began to provide a generous annual grant to establish the Preserve's paid, professional-level research fellowships. Emily Southgate, Adjunct Professor at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland, was selected as the Fellow in 2012. Dr. Southgate is working on an analysis of the history of the vegetation and landscape of the Mohonk Preserve Foothills, newly under the Preserve’s management. Her analysis of changing land use and land cover over time, and responses of vegetation and fauna to those changes, will help inform the Preserve’s management and interpretation of these upland and lowland forests, swamps, woodlands, and meadows.
We welcome graduate students to apply to become Sussman interns at the Preserve. Students at SUNY ESF and other participating schools may apply through their school for support from the Edna Bailey Sussman Foundation. Learn more about the Sussman Internships.
Every summer, the Mohonk Preserve offers paid internships for students. The internships run for 10 weeks (June to mid-August). The application deadline for 2013 will be posted by early January.
