Washington Sea Grant Keystone Fellowship Program

APPLICATION NOW CLOSED – Next application cycle will open Spring 2020

Overview

Washington Sea Grant (WSG) is excited to announce the launch of our new Keystone Fellowship Program.

The goal of this fellowship program is to broaden participation in marine and coastal professions by providing early career experience, training and mentorship to the next generation of scientists, decision makers, and marine industry professionals.The program will do so by recruiting, retaining and engaging students who represent the human social diversity of the coastal communities that Washington Sea Grant works with. People of color, indigenous people, representatives of the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, and allies are encouraged to apply for this opportunity.

 

This paid fellowship offers a unique educational opportunity by matching highly motivated and qualified individuals with host offices throughout Washington State.

  • Fellows are matched with hosts from state or local government, tribes, nonprofits and maritime industries.
  • Fellows work primarily on science, policy, and industry related projects with an additional emphasis on work related to the advancement of social justice, racial equity and inclusion in these professional spaces.
  • WSG Keystone fellows receive mentorship both through their host office and through participation in professional development activities with Washington Sea Grant.

 

The Fellowship offers first-hand experience working on projects that help us better understand, conserve and utilize Washington’s ocean and coastal resources while building pathways into marine related careers for individuals who are historically underrepresented in those fields
