The Hudson River Foundation was established in 1981 under the terms of an agreement among environmental groups, government regulatory agencies and utility companies. The Foundation's grants primarily support independent, objective research that will inform scientific understanding, management, and policy decisions about the River and its Estuary.
Tibor T. Polgar Fellowship
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.
The Tibor T. Polgar Fellowship program is a student research program conducted through the Hudson River Foundation 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 ($5,000 for each fellowship) and research funds (up to $1,000) for eight college students to conduct research on the Hudson River.
