Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA postgraduate students in eligible fields for programs related to the management of coastal resources. Fellows will participate in a two-year educational training program while receiving wages, health benefits, and relocation and travel support. Fellowship participants will work on pre-selected projects in the area of coastal management and digital coastal resources.

The Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship program matches postgraduate students to work on projects proposed by the host and selected by the fellowship sponsor, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management. The program also provides fellows with professional mentoring and training.

Placement for the Coastal Management Fellowship positions is fully integrated into the placement process with the Digital Coast partner organizations. Candidates will apply to the Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship program as a whole, and selected candidates will be eligible to interview with both the state coastal programs and the Digital Coast partnership organizations at the fellowship matching workshop.

  • The Coastal Management Fellowship provides on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students and to provide project assistance to state coastal zone management programs. 
  • The NOAA Digital Coast Fellowship provides on-the-job education and training opportunities in coastal resource management and policy for postgraduate students and to provide technical assistance to help advance the goals of the Digital Coast and its partner organizations.

Number of Grants:

Of the 24 finalists selected in 2022, up to nine will be placed with a state coastal program and up to three will be placed with a Digital Coast partner.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The current salary is $42,000 per year. In the second year of the fellowship, a locality pay factor may be added to the salary, depending on the location of the fellowship. Other benefits include health insurance, worker’s compensation, relocation stipend, and travel reimbursement.

Term of Contract:

Fellowship projects are two years long. For instance, the 2022 fellowship will start in August 2022 and end in August 2024.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any U.S. citizen who will complete a master’s or other advanced degree at an accredited U.S. university between August 1, 2020, and July 31, 2022, is eligible to apply for the Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowships. Students from a broad range of programs are encouraged to apply. A variety of degrees are applicable to the fellowship because the projects are new and different each year.

Previous fellows have had degrees in environmental studies, natural resource management, marine affairs, marine science, geology, public affairs, and regional land management. The most important prerequisite is an interest in coastal management issues.

Students who are not U.S. citizens or who attend non-U.S. institutions are not eligible.
