Cathy Norton (1941-2014) directed the MBLWHOI Library for nearly two decades as a true visionary in the area of information science. This fellowship celebrates her commitment to sharing knowledge and information, her ability to inspire, her “just do it” attitude, and her love of a challenge.

The fellowship covers approved expenses for students and early career librarians, archivists, data science professionals or scholars in the humanities or sciences.

Projects should be openly accessible, collaborative, innovative, connective, and laying the foundation for new scientific knowledge. Applicants can also select to work on an existing project for the Library. Please see the projects page for a full list of potential projects.
