Lacawac Sanctuary welcomes applications for the Robert Estabrook Moeller Memorial Fund Research Fellow Award. 

Dr. Robert E. Moeller, a long-time friend and supporter of the Lacawac Sanctuary passed away in late May, 2011 at the age of 62. Robert was a limnologist, a researcher who studied the structure and function of lakes and the organisms that live in them. He was always generous in giving his time to help students and colleagues with their research.

It is the intention of the Robert Estabrook Moeller Memorial Fund to support promising young scholars in limnology with bright, inquisitive minds who will perpetuate this search for knowledge.


Robert’s generosity extended to his establishing an endowed fund which will support Robert Estabrook Moeller Research Fellow awards to college and university students and faculty to do limnological research on Lake Lacawac and other Pocono region lakes.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Applicants can be students or faculty.
  • The award supports scholars conducting limnological research on Lake Lacawac and other Pocono region lakes.
  • The award must be used in support of research done while the investigator is in residence at Lacawac Sanctuary.


  • Preference will be given to scholars who are new Lacawac users or are starting new projects, and who also request funding to cover Lacawac lodging, lab, and/or boat fees.
