The NOAA Sea Grant John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship application period is now open. 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 February 1, 2024. Each award will be $68,000 for salary/stipend and personnel expenses as well as additional funding for allowable expenses and office-related travel.
