Graduate Students Invited To Apply
The Connecticut Sea Grant College Program is now accepting applications from graduate students for the Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship Program. The fellowship is for a one-year period beginning on or about Feb. 1, 2006.
The Knauss fellowship provides a special educational experience to students with an interest in ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources and in national policy decisions affecting those resources. The program matches highly qualified graduate students with “hosts” in the legislative and executive branch of government located in the Washington, D.C. area, for a year-long paid fellowship.
Details about the program and how to apply may be found on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) webpage at: http://www.seagrant.noaa.gov/knauss. The Knauss fellowship award is $41,500, with $33,000 designated for salary and living expenses, $7,000 for mandatory health insurance and moving expenses, and $1,500 for placement week costs.
Faculty and staff are requested to make this information available to qualified graduate students.
Completed applications must be submitted to the Connecticut Sea Grant Program office no later than March 16, to allow ample time for processing. Those intending to apply should call at their earliest convenience to arrange an interview, and to receive further application guidance.
Please contact Edward Monahan, director, or Robert Johnston, associate director, at the Connecticut Sea Grant Program office if you need additional information.
