Fellowships of $89,000 to USA and territories graduate students to gain experience in coastal management and research in Washington, DC. Allowable uses of funding include, but are not limited to, tuition, relocation, publication fees, conferences, trainings, workshops, and travel. The Fellowship offers direct experience working on the latest issues in ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes management and research.

NOAA provides funding to Sea Grant institutions to increase the understanding, assessment, development, management, utilization, and conservation of the Nation’s ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources by providing assistance to promote a strong educational base, responsive research and training activities, broad and prompt dissemination of knowledge and techniques, and multidisciplinary approaches to environmental problems.

The Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship provides a unique educational and professional experience to graduate students who have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources. The Fellowship matches highly qualified 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.
