Delta Science Fellowship Application Deadline: Dec 20, 2019 The Delta Science Fellows Program (previously known as the CALFED Science Fellows Program) was established to bring together graduate students and postdoctoral researchers with Bay-Delta agency scientists and senior research mentors. Fellows work on collaborative data analysis and research projects applicable to the California Bay-Delta system. The goal of funding this research is to invest in knowledge that will fundamentally advance the understanding of the complex environments and systems within the Bay-Delta system to aid policy-makers and managers, and to train the next generation of research scientists for water issues in California. California Sea Grant administers and manages the fellowship program on behalf of the Delta Stewardship Council - Delta Science Program. More info here.
Alaska Sea Grant State Fellowship Program Application Deadline: TBA around Dec, 2019 A unique professional opportunity for soon-to-graduate or recently finished graduate students interested in the science and policy needed to keep our marine resources healthy. Modeled after the highly successful Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship, the state fellowship program provides an opportunity to acquire on-the-job experience in the planning and implementation of marine resource policies and programs in Alaska. The program matches highly motivated graduate students and recent graduates with hosts in Alaska-based state or federal agencies for a 12-month paid fellowship. More info here.
Kathryn D. Sullivan Earth and Marine Science Fellowship Application Deadline: Jan 31, 2020 The Kathryn D. Sullivan Earth and Marine Science Fellowship is designed to increase the number of highly trained earth and marine scientists and enable graduate students to conduct NASA-related Earth/marine science research..
