Washington Sea Grant State Fellowship
Fellowship dates: October 1, 2017 – September 30, 2018
This year’s host offices are The Nature Conservancy, Makah Office of Tribal Affairs and Washington State Departments of Ecology and 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.

“At The Nature Conservancy, Washington Sea Grant State Fellows have become essential members of the marine conservation team. The Fellows refresh ocean policy and science expertise, and they add to the capacity to tackle some of our state’s most pervasive challenges. The one-year term keeps the host focused on clear objectives, and their obligation to provide a top drawer educational experience inspires a host to open minds to new learning opportunities. It’s really a win-win arrangement.”
Paul Dye, former director of marine conservation, The Nature Conservancy-Washington and current assistant director of outreach at Washington Sea Grant
