About the fellowship: The NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship was established to provide on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students and to provide project assistance to state coastal zone management programs. The program matches postgraduate students with state coastal zone programs to work on projects proposed by the state and selected by the fellowship sponsor, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management.
Length of fellowship: This two-year opportunity (exact dates TBA; anticipated to start August 2022) offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement. Coastal Management Fellows work on substantive state-level coastal resource management issues that pertain to federal management policies and regulations.
Deadline: TBA; deadline is expected to be sometime in January 2022.
