The 2018-2019 Island Fellows


Island Fellows Program

The Island Fellows Program is one of the signature programs of the Island Institute. Since 1999, the Island Fellows Program has placed college and master’s degree graduates in Maine’s coastal and year-round island communities for one to two years. Fellowships provide a unique opportunity for recent graduates to apply their skills and gain experience helping to build sustainability within communities whose way of life and identity face many challenges.

For the second year, the Island Institute hosted a free six-week lecture series focusing on the Maine coast. Authors, artists, community members, and other experts discussed life along Maine's waterfront and offered their perspectives, reflections, and insights on everything from art and aquaculture to modern-day challenges and connections.
