Applications due to Oregon Sea Grant: January 26, 2018 by 5:00 pm Pacific
NEW! Webinar recording: Did you miss Oregon Sea Grant's Winter Fellowship Webinar? Find the webinar recording here. The PowerPoint slides to this presentation are available here. This webinar covers the application process, including use of eSeaGrant, for the NMFS/Sea Grant Population Dynamic and Marine Resource Economics Graduate, NOAA Coastal Management &Digital Coast, and Knauss Marine Policy Fellowships.
Notice for Application Submission: Oregon Sea Grant uses eSeaGrant, an online system, for submitting fellowship applications. In order to access this system, you must email firstname.lastname@example.org by January 12, 2018 declaring your intent to apply. Stating your intent does not obligate you to apply. Once you submit your intent to apply, an eSeaGrant account will be created for you. Even if you already have an eSeaGrant account, you must submit an intent to apply to access the application. 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 National Sea Grant Office (NSGO) and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) support a PhD Graduate Fellowship Program in Marine Resource Economics. The intent of the Program is to award a limited number of Fellowships each year to students who are interested in careers related to the economics of the conservation and management of living marine resources. The overall goals of the Program are to 1) encourage qualified applicants to pursue careers in marine resource economics; 2) increase available expertise related to the economic analysis of living marine resource conservation and management decisions; 3) foster closer relationships between academic scientists and NMFS; and 4) provide real-world experience to graduate students and accelerate their career development.
The Fellowships can provide support for up to two years for highly qualified graduate students working towards a PhD in a related field of study. Each Fellow will be required to work closely with an expert (mentor) from NMFS who may provide data for the Fellow's thesis, serve on the Fellow's committee, and host an annual summer internship at the participating NMFS facility. Mentors will be from participating NMFS Science Centers or Offices.
Schedule of Dates:
Eligibility: Prospective Fellows must be United States citizens, and at the time of application, be admitted to a PhD degree program in resource economics, environmental economics, or a related field at an institution of higher education in the United States or its territories, or submit a signed letter from the institution indicating provisional acceptance to a PhD degree program conditional on obtaining financial support such as this Fellowship.
