The Coastal Management Fellowship is a two-year fellowship established to provide on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students. The program matches postgraduate students from a variety of environmental disciplines with state coastal resource agencies to work on coastal projects proposed by the state and selected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coastal Services Center. Any student completing a master’s, doctoral, or professional degree in natural resource management or environmental-related studies from an accredited U.S. university between January 1, 2014, and July 31, 2015 is eligible to apply. Students from a broad range of environmental programs are encouraged to apply.
The deadline for applications is January 23, 2015. Virginia students must apply through Virginia Sea Grant via the online application submission website: https://evaseagrant.vims.edu/RFP/proposals (select “2015 Coastal Management Fellowship” call). Additional information about the fellowship, along with detailed instructions on how to apply, can be found on the submission website.
