2021 NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics
Grants & Policies: Funding Opportunities: Current RFPs

Closes at: 5:00 PM Eastern on January 26, 2021

Applications are being accepted for the 2021 NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowship in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics (NOFO #: NOAA-OAR-SG-2021-2006728).

The NMFS-Sea Grant Joint Fellowship Program in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics is designed to help Sea Grant fulfill its broad educational responsibilities and to strengthen the collaboration between Sea Grant and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). Since 1990, Sea Grant and NMFS have partnered to train students through this joint fellowship program in two specialized areas: population and ecosystem dynamics as well as marine resource economics. Population and ecosystem dynamics involve the study of fish populations and marine ecosystems to better assess fishery stock conditions and dynamics.

For 2021, the disciplines of Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics have been combined into a single opportunity, rather than two separate NOFOs. There will still be separate review panels for the two disciplines, and applicants must specify their project’s focus area in their title page: either Population and Ecosystem Dynamics (PED), or Marine Resource Economics (MRE). See “Required Elements” in the quick guide or the full NOFO announcement for more information. 

Additional application information can be found on the NOAA Fisheries/Sea Grant Fellowship Web site.

Graduate students at New York institutions should submit through the New York Sea Grant program. Please follow all instructions as conveyed in the NOFO announcement from:

Grants.Gov: 2020 NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowships in Population and Ecosystem Dynamics and Marine Resource Economics

For interested parties submitting through New York Sea Grant:

  • Click "Apply Now" below.

  • On the application and file submission form:
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."

Provide a title (do not make your title very long).

Browse and upload your application file then click the submit application button.

Note: Be sure your application includes "Required Elements" as detailed on pages 8-10 in the Full Announcement of Federal Funding Opportunity. Note that the forms requested (SF-424, etc.) from the bottom of page 10 (under 3. Overall Application) are submitted by NY Sea Grant Office.

Because of the "signed" letters and transcripts that are required with this application, we suggest that you scan these documents and combine with the other required documents as one PDF document, and then upload one complete file. 

If necessary, letters of recommendation can be submitted through this form separately by letter writers by selecting “Letter of Recommendation” from the drop down list. 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.

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.
