Oregon Sea Grant Natural Resource Policy Fellowships
Oregon Natural Resource Policy Fellowship
The Natural Resource Policy Fellowship will place one graduate student fellow in an Oregon state agency for one year beginning January 2013. This fellowship is intended to give a student first-hand experience in natural resource policy at the state level. The student chosen for the fellowship will interview with the state agency to make sure it is the best fit for the student and for the agency.
Application Deadline: November 19, 2012
Who May Apply
Graduate students from any Oregon college or university with a strong interest in natural resource policy are encouraged to apply. It is preferable that students have completed their degree before the start of this fellowship but within eighteen months prior to the time of the fellowship application deadline (degree conferred after June 2011). We will also consider current students near the end of their program. Women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.
