This year’s host offices are The Makah Tribe, The Nature Conservancy, Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, The Washington State Department of Ecology (Shorelands Program), The Washington State Department of Ecology (Spills Program) and The Washington State Department of Health. Graduate students or recent graduates of Washington state universities are invited to apply for this fellowship.
I knew even before going to graduate school at the UW that I wanted to be a Washington Sea Grant Fellow. Working as a marine educator at Padilla Bay, I picked up a Sea Grant newsletter and read about the fellowship. That day truly helped me set a goal and direction for my career path. The fellowship provided an ideal transition from graduate school to the career world, and opened my eyes to many opportunities throughout Washington and beyond.
