California Sea Grant State Fellowship
The California Sea Grant College Program is soliciting applications for the 2020 California State Fellows Program. The State Fellows Program provides a unique educational opportunity for graduate students who are interested in marine, coastal, and/or watershed resources and in the decisions affecting those resources in California. Modeled after the highly successful Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship Program, the State Fellows Program provides an opportunity to acquire on-the-job experience in the planning, implementation and management of marine, coastal, and/or watershed resource policies and programs in the state of California. The program matches highly motivated and qualified graduate students and recent graduates with hosts in state, federal or municipal agencies in California for a 12-month paid fellowship ($3,905 per month).
There will also be an opportunity for state fellows to work with the Sea Grant Extension program. California Sea Grant extension specialists work with state and federal agencies, nonprofit organizations, local businesses, and members of the California coastal community to identify emerging marine resource problems and opportunities, conduct applied scientific research, and share findings with stakeholder groups. Fellows will choose extension project/s that align with their fellowship assignments and is anticipated to contribute no more than two months spread out over the year.
