How to Apply to Become a LaDIA Fellow

LaDIA Fellows are selected by Louisiana Sea Grant based on their potential to develop innovative approaches to coastal research. Applicants for the program are leaders in their research fields, use interdisciplinary networks and seek out partnerships beyond the ivory tower. Applicants may work in a wide range of fields, including environmental science, engineering, policy, design, architecture, urban planning and law. Applicants must show how their research is relevant to Louisiana’s coast.

Fellowship applications were due April 14, 2017. Please contact Dani DiIullo with questions.
