Organization: 

Stemming from his vision and passion for the conservation of Barnegat Bay, in Tom's River, New Jersey, it was the late Paul “Pete” McLain who initiated the Student Grant Program in 2007. As someone committed to academic research, as well as a wildlife biologist and conservationist, he hoped students would dedicate their careers to better understand the bay and its ecosystem.

Save Barnegat Bay, in collaboration with its partners, aims to continue Pete’s vision by assisting students with their independent research each year. To support this goal, Save Barnegat Bay offers $1,000 to each accepted Team Project student and $1,500 to each accepted Independent Project student.

This program provides a hands-on learning opportunity for undergraduate students at accredited colleges and universities to conduct field research, report and present their findings, and contribute to the conservation of Barnegat Bay. Graduate students who are eligible can enhance their research experience with this field-work funding opportunity.
