Michigan Sea Grant is recruiting applicants for three fellowship programs.The fellowships offer terrific career-building and networking opportunities, real-world training, a salary and benefits, and a chance to explore careers that combine science and policy.
Graduate students with a wide range of backgrounds (i.e., natural or physical sciences, policy, law) and a strong interest in Great Lakes, coastal, aquatic or marine issues are encouraged to apply. Programs require a full-time commitment, and typically fellows graduate from their degree program before embarking on the fellowship.
