Accepting Applications for Marine Policy Fellowship

The Sea Grant College Program is accepting applications for the John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship, a unique educational experience for students who have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources. The program matches highly qualified graduate students with hosts in the legislative and executive branches of government located in the Washington D.C. area for a one-year paid fellowship.

Any student in a graduate or professional program in a marine or aquatic-related field at a U.S. accredited institution of higher education is eligible for the fellowship. The UH Sea Grant will receive and administer an overall award of $46,000 per student on behalf of each fellow. The award includes $35,000 in stipend and living costs and $9,000 to cover mandatory health insurance and other expenses. Any remaining funds shall be used during the fellowship year, first to satisfy academic degree- related activities, and second for fellowship-related activities. Finally, up to $2,000 can be used to cover placement week costs.
