Fellowships from the Link Foundation 

In 2022, the Link Foundation will award (6) one-year Fellowships to qualified PhD students that are pursuing research related to engineering and instrumentation for the ocean environment.

The Awards:

On the basis of an application to the Foundation in the form of a research proposal, six awards
will be made to doctoral candidates enrolled in academic institutions located in the United States
and Canada. Each award will consist of a grant of $34,000. There are no citizenship restrictions.

Basis for Award:

An independent panel of experts in the fields of ocean engineering and ocean instrumentation
will review the applications. The main evaluation criteria include the degree of innovation,
technical merit and relevance to ocean engineering/instrumentation of the proposed research.
Additionally, each candidate should demonstrate intellectual ability and achievement, evidence
of creativity and initiative and the potential for a career that will impact ocean engineering and
ocean instrumentation
