Our newest fellowship program, which aims to build pathways into marine science and policy careers for individuals who are historically underrepresented in those fields.
Spend a year working with Washington host offices on ocean and coastal science and management issues.
Work for a year on a congressional staff or in a federal agency, and study, implement, and even create marine policy.

Receive two- and three-year funding support for Ph.D. research in either population and ecosystem dynamics or marine resource economics.
