NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship

Fellowship dates: August 1, 2018 – July 31, 2020


Coastal Management Fellows work for two years with state coastal zone programs on projects proposed by the states and selected by NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management. In a mutually beneficial arrangement, each fellow receives on-the-job training in coastal management and policy and, in return, the coastal resources program gets technical assistance from students well-versed in the latest advances in coastal resource science and policy.

DPulceAs someone with a marine and biological sciences background, I found the NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship an opportunity to develop into a much more well-rounded professional with multiple perspectives on coastal issues, policies, and regulation.
