Notice for Application Submission: Oregon Sea Grant is using a new system, called eSeaGrant, for submitting fellowship applications. In order to access this system, you must email eseagrant@oregonstate.edu by January 6, 2017 declaring your interest in applying. Stating your interest does not obligate you to apply. Once you submit your interest in this fellowship, an eSeaGrant account will be created for you. 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 learn how to navigate, and we are here to provide assistance as needed; however, please do not wait until the last minute to apply.

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.
