The Quimby Family Foundation Thesis Fellows Program is dedicated to encouraging students to appreciate and understand the rich beauty and history of Maine. These scholars are committed to preserving Maine’s story – past, present, and future – in order to keep Maine “the way life should be.”
Quimby Family Foundation Thesis Fellows are students in the Honors College at the University of Maine whose undergraduate thesis research either engages the conservationist and activist principles found in the work of Roxanne Quimby or seeks to explore Maine’s natural environment and rich history through quantitative or qualitative research.
Quimby Family Foundation Thesis Fellows are devoted to improving the world through active research and environmentally-conscious efforts. Their research is intended to make a positive difference in the lives of others by discovering and investigating ways to preserve, conserve, and improve the state of Maine.
The fellowship committee will notify applicants as to the decision on their proposals no later than two weeks after the submission deadline.
