Application Now Open for 2020 Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship Program
The NOAA Office of Coastal Management (OCM) offers the Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship Program. This on-the-job education and training in coastal resource management and policy is offered to postgraduate students and provides assistance to state coastal zone management agencies and NOAA partners. The nine fellowship positions start in August 2020 and are available with the California State Coastal Conservancy, the coastal programs in Delaware, Guam, Maryland, Texas, and U.S. Virgin Islands, and three of our Digital Coast partners, including the Association of State Floodplain Managers (in partnership with the Coastal States Organization), the National Estuarine Research Reserve Association, and The Nature Conservancy.
For the 2020 fellowship, applicants must complete a Master’s or other advanced degree at an accredited U.S. university between January 1, 2019, and July 31, 2020, 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 for the 2020 Coastal Management Fellowship Program must be submitted to the Sea Grant office in the state where the student is receiving their degree by Friday, January 17, 2020 5pm local time. New Jersey students are encouraged to contact Dr. Peter Rowe at the NJSGC with any questions or concerns.
