Coastal Management Fellowship Program

Coastal Management Fellowship Program

Applications for the 2023-2025 program were due to their local Sea Grant by January 27, 2023.

NOAA is recruiting candidates for the 2023 Coastal Management 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. The five fellowship positions start in August 2023 and are available with the coastal programs in Connecticut, Maine, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Washington State, and Washington, D.C. Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found at coast.noaa.gov/fellowship.

For the 2023 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, 2021, and July 31, 2023. A broad range of degrees are applicable to the fellowship because the projects vary by host organizations. This two-year opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursements.

Application packages must be submitted to the Sea Grant program office in the state where you earned your degree by January 27, 2023. Individuals who receive 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.
