California Sea Grant State Fellowship

NOAA is recruiting candidates for the 2022 Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship Program. This program’s mission is 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 agencies and other key NOAA partners. The twelve fellowship positions start in August 2022 and are available with the California Coastal Commission, California Coastal Conservancy, and the coastal programs in Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Oregon, and three hosted by Digital Coast Partners: the Coastal States Organization (in partnership with Association of State Floodplain Managers, the National States Geographic Information Council, and The Nature Conservancy). Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found at and on the attached information.

For the 2022 fellowship, applicants must be U.S. citizens who will complete a master’s or other advanced degree at an accredited U.S. university between August 1, 2020, and July 31, 2022. A broad range of degrees are applicable to the fellowship because the projects are varied among the host organizations. This two-year opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement.
