2019 NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship
Grants & Policies: Funding Opportunities: Current RFPs

Closes at: 5:00 p.m. Eastern on Friday, January 18, 2019

Applications are now being accepted for the NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship.

The Coastal Management Fellowship was established in 1996 to provide 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 program matches postgraduate students with state coastal zone programs to work on projects proposed by the state and selected by the fellowship sponsor, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management. This two-year opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement. Visit the Coastal Management Fellowship Web page for information and instructions on how to prepare your application materials and download the announcement from the related files box on the left.

Graduate students at New York institutions must apply through the New York Sea Grant program using this submission portal. Submission via email or postal mail will not be accepted.

Notes for your Fellowship Application:

  • Make sure your application includes all four required parts as detailed under “Eligibility” on page three of the announcement or under “Application Requirements” on the fellowship “Fellow Eligibility and Selection” Web page.

  • Letters of recommendation can be submitted through this portal separately by each letter writer coming to this page, clicking the “Apply Now” button and by selecting “Letter of Recommendation” from the drop down list of the form. They must provide their contact information on the form. For title they should use their last name followed by “letter of recommendation for” followed by your name.

  • Because of the "signed" letters and transcripts that are required with this application, we suggest that you scan and combine these documents with the other required elements as one PDF document, and then upload one complete file. You can upload files separately if you want to.

For interested students submitting through New York Sea Grant, when your application is ready return to this page and:

  • Click "Apply Now" below.
  • Check that in the middle column it says “Fellowship Application”, otherwise select “Fellowship Application” from the drop down list.
  • Under “Applicant” provide all required contact information.
  • Title should be in the format “<Last Name>-2019 NOAA Coastal Management Fellowship”
  • Browse and upload your application file(s) then click the submit application button.

Note that the deadline time is based on the server clock displayed on the top right of the submission form not your computer’s time. Note the time remaining displayed in red.
