Washington Sea Grant is excited to announce several fellowship
opportunities for graduate students and recent graduates in the upcoming
academic year.


*Washington Sea Grant Fellowship Information Sessions*

*Tuesday, November 28: 12:30 – 1:30pm**, Allen Library Auditorium*

*Wednesday, November 29: 12:30 – 1:30pm**, FSH 203*

Please join Washington Sea Grant to learn about fellowship opportunities
available to graduate students this coming year. The session will provide
an overview of current fellowship programs and answer any questions about
Sea Grant fellowships and how to apply.

*2019 John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship*: The fellowship provides a
unique educational and professional experience to graduate students who
have an interest in national policies affecting ocean, coastal, and Great
Lakes resources. The fellowship matches highly qualified graduate students
with host offices in the legislative and executive branches of the federal
government located in the Washington, D.C. area, for a one-year paid
fellowship. Eligible applicants include current graduate students and those
graduating in June of 2018. Applications will be due in February of 2018.
More information can be found here

*2018-2019 Marc Hershman Marine Policy Fellowship*: Fellows are teamed with
mentors in government agencies or nongovernmental organizations to work on
ocean and coastal science and management issues specific to Washington
State. The one-year paid fellowship provides graduate students with
hands-on experience with ocean and coastal policy processes within the
state. Students who are currently enrolled in a graduate program or will
graduate in 2018 are eligible, and applications should be due in Spring
2018. More information is available here

*2018-2020 Sea Grant/NOAA Fisheries Graduate Fellowship*: This program
provides PhD students with two to three years of funding for research on
marine resource economics or population and ecosystem dynamics. Fellows
partner with their graduate advisors and a National Marine Fisheries
Service scientist to conduct their research. Eligible students must be
admitted to a relevant PhD program at the time of application. Applications
will be due in late winter 2018. More information can be found here

*2018-2020 NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship*: Fellows work for two years
with state coastal zone programs on projects selected by NOAA’s Office for
Coastal Management. In a mutually beneficial arrangement, each fellow
receives on-the-job training in coastal management and policy and, in
return, the coastal resources program gets technical assistance from
students well versed in the latest advances in coastal resource science and
policy. This fellowship is open to graduate students who will have
completed their degree program between January 1, 2017 and July 31, 2018.
More information can be found here

*Washington Sea Grant Science Communication Fellowship*: Fellows work for
two academic quarters on a range of communications projects, from writing
articles for publication to developing web content. Fellows are given the
opportunity to develop their portfolios as writers and communicators,
building bridges between scientific information and public understanding.
Fellows work an average of 10 hours/week and receive a $3,000 stipend. This
fellowship is open to graduate students and upper level undergraduate
students. More information can be found here

*Washington Sea Grant Research Fellowship*: This new fellowship is
available to graduate students working toward an advanced degree in a
marine or coastal science-related discipline as part of a Washington Sea
Grant competitive research project. The fellowship will offer up to eight
quarters of a graduate student stipend over the duration of a two-year
project. Application for a fellowship position must be included as part of
a principal investigator’s submission to the WSG Request for Proposals. The
next RFP will be released in January 2019 for projects funded from February
2020 through January 2022.

*About WSG*: Housed within the College of the Environment at the University
of Washington, Washington Sea Grant is a leader in marine research,
outreach, and education, working on issues as diverse as salmon
conservation, tsunami preparedness, small oil spills, and ocean
acidification. Washington Sea Grant is one of 33 Sea Grant programs across
the country, administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
