The John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship provides a unique educational experience to students who have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources.
The program matches graduate students with host agencies in Washington, D.C., such as congressional offices, the National Marine Fisheries Service or U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. For one year, fellows work on a range of policy and management projects related to ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources. Fellows can be placed in the federal legislative or executive branches; learn more about what legislative fellows do.
The fellowship will run from February 1, 2019, through January 31, 2020.
Any student who is in a graduate or professional program in a marine or aquatic-related field at a U.S. accredited institution of higher education may apply.
