Application

The goals of the NOAA Fisheries/Sea Grant Fellowship Program are:

  •  To encourage qualified applicants to pursue careers in either population and ecosystem dynamics and stock assessment or in marine resource economics

  •  To increase available expertise related to these fields

  •  To foster closer relationships between academic scientists and NOAA Fisheries

  •  To provide real-world experience to graduate students and accelerate their career development. 

To help achieve these goals, each Fellow will be required to work closely with an expert (mentor) from NOAA Fisheries who will serve on the Fellow’s committee. The mentor may also provide access to research data sources and to working/laboratory space in a NOAA Fisheries research facility and/or research vessel, if appropriate.

Eligibility

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. Only U.S. citizens are eligible to apply. Foreign Nationals are not eligible.

Ph.D. students in marine resource economics, concentrating on the conservation and management of living marine resources, can receive two years of funding.
