Welcome to the 7th edition of the Link Foundation Newsletter!

Through this newsletter, we seek to provide increased visibility for the Foundation's programs, our Fellows (both past and present) and their activities. It is also anticipated that the newsletter, and abstracts of prior Fellowship winners in particular, will be useful for Fellowship applicants by providing tangible examples of work that the Foundation has supported.

In this issue, we proudly present the recipients of the Link Foundation Fellowships awarded in 2009-10. We, of course, have a section where we list our 2009-10 Link Foundation appeal donors so we can officially “thank” them for helping the Link Foundation continue its practices of providing fellowships and awards to worthy institutions.

In addition, we are proud to congratulate Dr. Laura Lapham, 2003-04 Link Foundation Ocean Engineering and Instrumentation Fellow, on receiving the prestigious L’Oreal USA Fellowship for Women in Science in 2008.

We would very much welcome any news and updates on any of our past Fellows. We would love to hear from you! If we have any “newsworthy” information throughout the year, we will add news updates to this site as appropriate.

Please write to us!
