NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship
About the Fellowship
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 post-graduate students. The program matches post-graduate 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) Office for Coastal Management. The fellowship positions start in August 2017 and are available with: CT, IL, MD, MA, NH, and OR. Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found at https://www.coast.noaa.gov/fellowship/.
For the 2017 Coastal Management Fellowship, applicants must complete a master’s, doctoral, or other advanced degree at an accredited U.S. university between January 1, 2016, and July 31, 2017, to be eligible. A broad range of degrees are applicable to the fellowship because the projects are varied among the host organizations. This two-year opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement.
The deadline for applications is January 20, 2017. Virginia graduate students must submit their application materials to Virginia Sea Grant via eSeaGrant (http://vaseagrant.ecsion.com) by the deadline. Application requirements, selection process, and other information can be found on the NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship website: https://www.coast.noaa.gov/fellowship/.
