Project-based fellowship for resource management post-grads

Notice for Application Submission: Oregon Sea Grant is using a new system, called eSeaGrant, for submitting fellowship applications In order to access this system, and therefore submit your application for this fellowship, you must email eseagrant@oregonstate.edu by January 6, 2017, declaring your interest in applying. Once you announce your interest in this fellowship, an eSeaGrant account will be created for you (stating your interest in applying does not make you obligated to apply). All components of your application, including letters of recommendation, will be submitted through this system. This is a new system that may take some time to figure out, and we are here to provide assistance as needed, but please do not wait until the last minute to apply.

Applications due: January 20, 2017

Purpose of Fellowship: The Coastal Management Fellowship was established in 1996 to provide on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students and to provide project assistance to state coastal zone management programs. The program matches postgraduate students with state coastal zone programs to work on projects proposed by the state and selected by the fellowship sponsor, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Coastal Services Center. This two-year opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement.

Eligibility: Any student who will complete a master's or other advanced degree in natural resource management or environmental-related studies at an accredited U.S. university between January 1, 2016, and July 31, 2017, is eligible. Students from a broad range of environmental programs are encouraged to apply. Students from non-U.S. institutions are not eligible.
