Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship
The Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship provides a unique educational and professional experience to graduate students who have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources. The Fellowship matches highly qualified graduate students with “hosts” in the legislative and executive branch of government located in the Washington, D.C. area, for a one year paid fellowship.
Deadline to apply for the 2025 fellowship is February 15, 2024!
NOAA Fisheries & Sea Grant
Sea Grant and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) offer this joint fellowship program in two specialized areas: population and ecosystem dynamics and marine resource economics. Population and ecosystem dynamics involve the study of fish populations and marine ecosystems to better assess fishery stock conditions and dynamics.
NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship
The two-year NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship provides on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students. Any student who will complete a master’s or other advanced degree in natural resource management or environmental-related studies at an accredited U.S. university can apply.
Community Engaged Internship (CEI) Program
The Sea Grant Community Engaged Internship is designed for undergraduate students from underrepresented and indigenous communities. The overarching goal of this internship program is to broaden participation in marine and coastal professions by providing training and mentorship to the next generation of scientists, decision makers and citizens.
Ernest F. Hollings Undergraduate Scholarship
The Hollings Scholarship Program provides successful undergraduate applicants with awards that include academic assistance (up to $9,500 per year) for two years of full-time study and a 10-week, full-time paid ($700/week) internship at a NOAA facility during the summer.
