The California Sea Grant College Program is soliciting applications for the 2018 California State Fellows Program. The State Fellows Program provides a unique educational opportunity for graduate students who are interested both in marine resources and in the policy decisions affecting those resources in California. Modeled after the highly successful Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship Program, the State Fellows Program provides an opportunity to acquire “on the job” experience in the planning, implementation and management of marine and/or coastal resource policies and programs in the state of California. The program matches highly motivated and qualified graduate students and recent graduates with “hosts” in state, federal or municipal agencies in California for a 12-month paid fellowship ($3,792 per month).
See the Sea Grant website for application information. The application deadline is September 1, 2017, 11:59 pm PST
