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 and experiential approach that 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, commerce, 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; develop an aesthetic appreciation that acknowledges the value of a healthy Bay; and propose solutions to Bay problems that interest them most.  Ultimately, the fellows will become life-long advocates for the Chesapeake Bay.
