Virginia Sea Grant is pleased to announce the availability of the 2016 Coastal Management Fellowship for Virginia students. The Coastal Management Fellowship is a two-year fellowship established to provide on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students. The program matches postgraduate students from a variety of environmental disciplines with state coastal resource agencies to work on coastal projects proposed by the state and selected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management. Any student completing a master’s, doctoral, or professional degree in natural resource management or environmental-related studies from an accredited U.S. university between January 1, 2015, and July 31, 2016 is eligible to apply. Students from a broad range of environmental programs are encouraged to apply.
The deadline for applications is January 22, 2016. Virginia students must submit their application materials to Virginia Sea Grant via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
