NOAA Sea Grant Knauss marine policy fellowships offered

The NOAA Sea Grant John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship application period is now open. The submission deadline is 5 p.m. on Feb. 22, 2019.

The Knauss Fellowship, established in 1979, provides a unique educational experience to graduate students who have an interest in ocean and coastal resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources. The program 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. CTSG is now accepting applications from graduate students for the one-year period anticipated to begin on Feb. 1, 2020. Each award will be funded with a total of up to $71,500 in federal funding, which includes up to $10,000 for office-related travel. In certain circumstances additional office-related travel funding may take the award above $71,500. In such cases any additional funds will be administered through an amendment to the grant.

For more detailed information please look at the Knauss Fellowship website. Interested students should discuss this fellowship with the Connecticut Sea Grant Director, Dr. Sylvain De Guise. A copy of the RFP can be obtained here.
