Fellowships are available for masters and doctoral students to conduct social science research within the National Estuarine Research Reserve System. Projetcs should provide information needed by reserve management and coastal management decision-makers and improve public awareness and understanding of estuarine ecosystem and estuarine management issues. Minosity students are encouraged to apply.
Applicants must be admitted to or enrolled in a full-time masters or doctoral program at a U.S. accredited university in order to be eligible to apply. Applicants should have completed a majority of their graduate course work at the beginning of their fellowship and have an approved thesis research program. Grants are normally distributed to the graduate student’s institution. Institutions eligible to receive awards include institutions of higher education, other non-profits, commercial organizations, international organizations, as well as state, local and Indian tribal governments. All reserve staff are ineligible to submit an application for a fellowship under this announcement. Funds are expected to be available on a competitive basis to qualified graduate students for research focused on a reserve(s) leading to a graduate degree.
