NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship


The NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship program matches highly qualified, recently graduated master’s, professional, and doctoral degree students with state coastal zone management programs. It is a two-year opportunity that offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and relocation and travel expense reimbursement. The recipients work on coastal resource management issues such as climate change, coastal hazards or land use planning for two years. Fellowship projects and host offices change each year. Fellow placements are in California, New York, North Carolina, Washington, and Wisconsin for the 2016 fellowship cycle.
