FELLOWSHIPS

Graduate Policy Fellowships
Note: Application deadline for the year 2010 fellowships is February 20, 2009.

The Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy

Evaristo Liwa and Kristen Laursen, former Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship recipients from LSU, discuss their experience as fellows with prospective applicants.

Fellowship is designed for students interested in marine and coastal issues and enrolled in a master’s, doctoral or professional graduate degree program. It provides an opportunity for a unique one-year experience in the legislative or executive branch of the federal government in Washington, D.C. During that year, the recipients work on substantive national policy issues related to aquatic resources. Louisiana Sea Grant may nominate up to five candidates to compete for approximately 50 available positions. Announcements of the program are usually distributed in February of each year, and applications for participation are due in February for appointments beginning February 1 of the following year. For detailed application information, visit the NOAA Knauss Fellowship Web site at www.seagrant.noaa.gov/knauss/knauss.html or contact Dave Nieland at 225-578-6373.
