The project I proposed during GradFund’s Summer Mentoring Program in 2009 is not exactly the dissertation I’ll be defending this summer, but it— and the work I continued to do with GradFund over the next six years— shaped that dissertation and the course of my graduate career. Even as one of the few incoming grad […]

This grant funds students doing in the fields of population and ecosystem dynamics research. To help achieve these goals, each Fellow will be required to work closely with an expert (mentor) from NOAA Fisheries who will serve on the Fellow’s committee.
Applicants must be in a graduate or professional program in a marine or aquatic-related field at a United States University. The program matches graduate students with “hosts” in the legislative and executive branch of government located in the Washington, D.C. area, for a one year paid fellowship.
The Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship Program provides support for independent graduate-level studies in oceanography, marine biology or maritime archaeology (including all science, engineering, and resource management of ocean and coastal areas), particularly to women and minorities.
The program focuses on observing, understanding, modeling, and predicting the climate system on seasonal to centennial time scales and assessing the regionally specific socioeconomic consequences of climate variability. The program pairs recently graduated postdoctorates with host scientists at U.S. institutions to work in an area of mutual interest. Advanced contact with potential hosts is strongly […]
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 […]
The goal of this award is to encourage research by students studying population dynamics, stock assessment, or marine resource economics. Fellows work closely with a NOAA Fisheries mentor, who will serve on the Fellow’s committee, and who may provide access to data, lab space or research vessels.
Paid postgraduate work for two years on specific technical projects with state coastal management resource agencies. Projects vary annually according to proposals submitted by host state administrations. Eligibility: Any student who has completed a Master’s, doctoral, or professional degree in natural resource management or environmental-related studies by July of the application year. Application deadline is […]
This program was established to respond to the need for additional coral reef management capacity in the U.S. Flag Pacific and Caribbean islands. The program provides the state and territorial coral reef management agencies with highly qualified candidates whose education and work experience meet each island’s specific needs, while providing the individual fellows with professional […]
The National Estuarine Research Reserve System’s Graduate Research Fellowship provides master’s degree students and Ph.D. candidates with an opportunity to conduct natural or social science research of local and national significance that focuses on enhancing coastal zone management.
The program seeks recent or anticipated PhDs who have expertise in climate science and who are interested in applying their knowledge of the climate system to decision-making capacity in climate-sensitive sectors. Preference is given to those who have held a PhD for no more than five years. Interested individuals should send the following materials to […]
