Project-based fellowship for resource management post-grads

The Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship provides on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for post-graduate students. As a fellow in this position you will also provide project assistance to state coastal zone management programs. The program matches post-graduate 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. If you are a 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 in the year prior to applying, you are eligible. Students from a broad range of environmental programs are encouraged to apply; however, students from non-U.S. institutions are not eligible.
