Ocean Acidification Research Fellowship available to students in Mid-Atlantic


The Mid-Atlantic Sea Grant Programs (MASGP), in partnership with OAP have announced the availability of a new Ocean Acidification (OA) Graduate Research Fellowship program for the two-year period covering the 2018 and 2019 academic years. The overall goal of the program is to develop OA researchers for the Mid-Atlantic in order for the Mid-Atlantic region to respond rapidly to the anticipated ocean acidification. Through these fellowships MASGP and OAP will achieve their goals of 1) increasing OA knowledge and research capacity in the Mid-Atlantic region through education and workforce development; 2) addressing key priority research needs on OA within the Mid-Atlantic region, and; 3) transferring fellowship research OA knowledge to relevant stakeholders through outreach and extension.

Applicants must be enrolled in a full-time graduate or professional degree program at an accredited academic institution in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York or Virginia prior to the awarding of the fellowship, no later than the fall 2018 semester. Students are expected to complete the fellowship while enrolled at their home institution. Students may be working toward a degree in any discipline as long as they are engaged in research that is coastal- or marine-related and relevant to the mission of the MASGP and OAP. The sponsors strongly encourage students who are from underrepresented groups in marine science, women, persons with disabilities, and veterans to apply.

Opportunity closes April 13, 2018
