    HUDSON RIVER FOUNDATION - 2014 Tibor T. Polgar Fellowship

    The Tibor T. Polgar Fellowship program is a research program conducted in cooperation with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Named in honor of the late Dr. Tibor T. Polgar, a major contributor to the early development of the Foundation, this program provides a summertime grant and research funds up to for eight college students (both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible) to conduct research on the Hudson River. The objectives of the program are to gather important information on all aspects of the River and to train students in conducting scientific studies and public policy research.
