It’s an exciting new fellowship program for graduate students at the national estuarine research reserves. One two-year fellowship opportunity will be available at each of the 29 coastal sites.
Through a research project, fellows will address a key coastal management question to help scientists and communities understand coastal challenges that may influence future policy and management strategies.
Pending congressional appropriations, NOAA anticipates an annual stipend of $34,000 per student plus $7,000 for travel, and an annual equipment and supply budget for each reserve of approximately $7,000.
The first fellowship class will begin in summer of 2020. Interested students are encouraged to explore each reserve’s management priorities.
