Coastal Management & Digital Coast Fellowship Program

Applications for the 2024-2026 program were due to your local Sea Grant by January 26, 2024.

The NOAA Office for Coastal Management is recruiting candidates for the 2024 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 nine fellowship positions start in August 2024 and are available with the California Coastal Commission, the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, the coastal programs in Connecticut, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Georgia, Maryland, and Washington, and two of our Digital Coast partners, including the Association of State Floodplain Managers (in partnership with the Coastal States Organization) and the Nature Conservancy. Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found on their website at https://coast.noaa.gov/fellowship/

For the 2024 fellowship, applicants must complete a master’s or other advanced degree at an accredited U.S. university between Aug. 1, 2022, and July 31, 2024, to be eligible. 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 Louisiana Sea Grant office by Friday, Jan. 26, 2024, via LSG’s online eSeaGrant system.
