Graduate Research Scholars
Note: Applications were due on November 21, 2022 by 5 p.m. CDT.
Louisiana Sea Grant is providing a coastal immersion program that combines community engagement and science communication training. Selected students will participate in a series of activities highlighting the needs of coastal residents and the importance of responsive, integrated research initiatives.
Scholars will gain new awareness of community perspectives on issues and challenges facing the state’s coast. This experience will hopefully inspire new research connections, provide communication tools to raise awareness and share other professional development opportunities. Trainings, lodging, meals and transportation will be provided by Louisiana Sea Grant at no cost to the students.
Each retreat is one-week long and involves travel across the state. Scholars only attend one retreat and indicate their availability on the application. There is no guarantee that you will get the session of your choosing. Trainings, lodging, meals and transportation will be provided by Louisiana Sea Grant at no cost to the students.
