The mission of the Chesapeake Bay Fellows program is to prepare civic leaders to effect the restoration and ultimate conservation
of the Chesapeake Bay. Through an interdisciplinary approach that extends education beyond the classroom (includes working with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation
), the program will engage fellows in environmental scholarship incorporating science, English, math, history, political science, and the arts.
Fellows will learn leadership skills
while they study the ecology and history of the Bay
; collect, analyze, and publish Bay data
; read the works of acclaimed environmental writers; become familiar with the various entities which implement, enforce, and monitor Bay policy
(including the Chesapeake Bay Foundation); develop an aesthetic appreciation
that acknowledges the value of a healthy Bay; and propose solutions
to Bay problems. Fellows will become life-long advocates
for the Chesapeake Bay.
