Marine Policy Fellowship Info Session

Fellowship Information Session (Bring your lunch!)

2012 Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship, 2011 Coastal Management Fellowship, 2011 Marc Hershman Marine Policy Fellowship, 2011 WSG Science Writing Fellowship,
2011 Sea Grant/NOAA Fisheries Fellowship

Please join Penny Dalton, Director of Washington Sea Grant; David Gordon, WSG Science writer; and Nancy Reichley, WSG Education Specialist, for an information session about our program and our marine policy and science fellowship opportunities. The Knauss Fellowship provides eligible graduate students a one-year work experience on the staff of the U.S. Congress or with a Federal agency dealing with marine issues. Similar in structure to the Knauss, the Hershman Fellowship offers graduate students a nine-month opportunity with Washington State Caucus agencies in Olympia. The two-year Coastal Management Fellowship matches postgraduate individuals with state coastal zone programs throughout the country. All three fellowships offer a first-hand look at how science is used in the policy arena and how decisions are made. The WSG Science Writing Fellowship enables undergraduate and graduate students to work with WSG Communications staff on developing materials that help individuals better understand and manage marine resources. The Sea Grant/NOAA Fisheries Fellowship offers two- and three-year research opportunities to Ph.D. candidates interested in population dynamics and stock assessment or marine resource economics.

Where and when: Wednesday, December 1, 2010, from 12:30-1:15 at Washington Sea Grant, 3716 Brooklyn Avenue, NE, Seattle.

Please contact Nancy Reichley with any questions about the fellowships or how to find our office.
