The intent of the Grassle Fellowship Fund (GFF) is to support post-generals graduate student research related to ocean biodiversity or physical-biological interactions. The ocean biodiversity theme relates to five questions: What lives in the ocean? Where do they live and why? How many are there? Are there long-term trends in biodiversity of marine ecosystems? If so, what factors affect observed/predicted changes? The physical-biological interactions theme relates to the effects of physical processes at all spatial scales on the ecology of marine organisms or ecosystems.
On the occasion of Paul M. Fye's retirement as Director of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and in special recognition of his and Ruth Fye's personal interest in the graduate program and students, the employees of the Institution established an endowed fund through personal contributions to support an award for the best graduate student paper.
