State Fellowship

Fellowship Type: Policy

The California Sea Grant State Fellows Program

California Sea Grant's State Fellows Program provides a unique educational opportunity for graduate students who are interested both in marine resources and in the policy decisions affecting those resources. The program matches highly motivated and qualified graduate students with "hosts" in municipal, state and federal agencies in California for a 12-month paid fellowship.

In the past, Sea Grant Fellows have been assigned to the California Ocean Resources Management Program, California Ocean Protection Council, California Ocean Science Trust, Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, NOAA Coastal Services Center, West Coast Regional Office, and CALFED Science Program (now Delta Science Program), among others. Selection of finalists is made by the California Sea Grant College Program, and assignments are decided in consultation with potential fellowship "hosts."
