Coastal Management & Digital Coast Fellowship Program

Coastal Management & Digital Coast Fellowship Program

Applications for 2022-2024 Program candidates were due January 21, 2022.

NOAA is recruiting candidates for the 2022 Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship Program. This program’s mission is to provide on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students and to provide project assistance to state coastal zone management agencies and other key NOAA partners. The 12 fellowship positions start in August 2022 and are available with the California Coastal Commission, California Coastal Conservancy and the coastal programs in Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Oregon, and three hosted by Digital Coast Partners: the Coastal States Organization (in partnership with Association of State Floodplain Managers, the National States Geographic Information Council and The Nature Conservancy). Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found at coast.noaa.gov/fellowship.

For the 2022 fellowship, applicants must be U.S. citizens who will complete a master’s or other advanced degree at an accredited U.S. university between August 1, 2020, and July 31, 2022. A broad range of degrees are applicable to the fellowship because the projects are varied among the host organizations. This two-year opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement.

Application packages must be submitted to the Sea Grant office in the state where you received your degree by Friday, Jan. 21, 2022. Individuals who received their degrees in Louisiana must submit their applications to Louisiana Sea Grant through the eSeaGrant portal at www.laseagrantdb.org. Portal registration is required and can be completed at that same web address.
