California Sea Grant is providing the NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship for graduate students. Applicants who are interested in careers related to the development of quantitative methods for improving the economics of living marine resources are eligible to apply. The program encourages applicants of all ages, gender identities, disabilities, cultures, religions, marital statuses, education levels, and socioeconomic status types to apply for this opportunity.
The purpose of this opportunity is to award a limited number of fellowships each year to students who are interested in careers related to population and ecosystem dynamics and marine resource economics with applications to living marine resources. There is only one application, so students must indicate which concentration they are applying for on their cover sheet
California Sea Grant is a collaboration of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the State of California and universities across the state to create knowledge, products and services that benefit the economy, the environment and the citizens of California.
