Annually, in a January-February timeframe, new applications for fellowship awards may be submitted to a state Sea Grant program.  The following text provides a general description of the process. The annual Federal Funding Opportunities will become available in fall of 2014.

National Marine Fisheries Service - Sea Grant Joint Graduate Fellowship Program in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics

The NOAA Fisheries/Sea Grant Joint Graduate Fellowship Program in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics is designed to help Sea Grant fulfill its broad educational responsibilities and to strengthen the collaboration between Sea Grant and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). The Fisheries Fellowship is available to US citizens who are graduate students enrolled in PhD degree programs in academic institutions in the United States and its territories. Sea Grant and NOAA Fisheries, with required institutional matching funds, expect to support at least two new Fisheries Fellows in both Population Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics in FY 2015.  Fisheries Fellows will work on thesis problems of public interest and relevance to NMFS at participating NMFS Science Centers or Laboratories under the guidance of NMFS mentors. Applicants should contact a local state Sea Grant program for application assistance. You’ll be asked to provide the program with the needed application material (see the appropriate Federal Funding Opportunity for details) and let the program submit the application to the Federal grant system.

  • Application materials should be submitted to the sponsoring Sea Grant program in January 2015.

  • Applications should be submitted by the local state Sea Grant program to the federal grant site in February 2015.

  • There are two separate funding numbers for the two portions of this competition.
