NOAA Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowships

NOAA is recruiting candidates for the 2022 Coastal Management Fellowship and Digital Coast Fellowship programs. These two-year fellowships provide on-the-job education and training in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students, and provide project assistance to state coastal zone management agencies and other key NOAA partners. The fellowships start in August, and are available with the California Coastal Commission, California Coastal Conservancy, and the coastal programs in Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Oregon, and three hosted by the Coastal States Organization in partnership with the Association of State Floodplain Managers, the National States Geographic Information Council, and The Nature Conservancy. 

For the two-year fellowships beginning 2022, applicants must be U.S. citizens who complete a master’s or other advanced degree at an accredited U.S. university between August 1, 2020, and July 31, 2022. A broad range of degrees are applicable to the fellowship due to the varied projects among the host organizations. This opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation reimbursement. Learn about eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply.

Applications must be submitted to the Sea Grant program in the state where you received your degree by Friday, January 21, 2022.
