2020 NOAA Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship Program.

The NOAA Office for Coastal Management is recruiting candidates for the 2020 Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship Program.  This program's mission is 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 agencies and other key NOAA partners.

The nine fellowship positions start in August 2020 and are available with the California State Coastal Conservancy, the coastal programs in Delaware, Guam, Maryland, Texas, and U.S. Virgin Islands, and three of our Digital Coast partners, including the Association of State Floodplain Managers (in partnership with the Coastal States Organization), the National Estuarine Research Reserve Association, and The Nature Conservancy. Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found at coast.noaa.gov/fellowship

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 “2020 NOAA Coastal Management and Digital Coast Fellowship for…”
  • 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.
