California Sea Grant Extension Fellowships
Extension fellowships provide opportunities for graduate students who have recently completed their degrees to engage with the dynamic team of California Sea Grant extension specialists who work with state and federal agencies, municipalities, nonprofit organizations, local businesses, and members of the California coastal community, to identify emerging marine resource problems and opportunities, conduct applied scientific research, and share findings with stakeholder groups. Together, the statewide extension team will support, and connect extension fellows to appropriate stakeholders (i.e. academic researchers, non-profit organizations, non-government organizations, and K-12 educators). Extension fellows will gain on-the-job experience in planning, implementation, and management, providing a unique educational opportunity for recent graduate students interested in outreach, marine resources and the policy decisions that affect them.
California Sea Grant extension specialists work with state and federal agencies, nonprofit organizations, local businesses, and members of the California coastal community to identify emerging marine resource problems and opportunities, conduct applied scientific research, and share findings with stakeholder groups. The work of our extension specialists effect behavioral change through programs focused on outcome-based objectives using a variety of educational processes and techniques over time. While California Sea Grant extension specialists are locally based, working to help address local concerns and needs, they also work on broader state–regional-national (and in some cases, international) projects.
