The Bellairs Research Institute, located on the Caribbean island of Barbados, was founded in 1954 as a field-station for McGill University. Initial funding was from a bequest by British naval commander, Carolyn Bellairs, for whom the institute is named. Bellairs is located in Holetown, next to Folkstone Park, steps away from the beach.
Initially founded as a marine biology field station, it is also currently used for undergraduates to partake in a Barbados Field Study Semester (BFSS). Environmental Engineering, International Development Studies and Environmental Studies are some of the areas it caters to.
Bellairs runs numerous McGill University field-courses and workshops throughout the year, including Applied Tropical Ecology, Geography, and the Barbados Field Study Semester. Bellairs also holds annual field courses from other universities from around the world including the University of Toronto (marine biology) and Western Michigan University (archeology).
