Grants & Policies: Funding Opportunities: Current RFPs

Closes at: 5:00 p.m. Eastern on Friday, January 27, 2023

NOAA is recruiting candidates for the 2023 Coastal Management 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. The five fellowship positions start in August 2023 and are available with the coastal programs in Connecticut, Maine, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Washington, and with the Coastal States Organization. Eligibility requirements, descriptions of the projects, and guidance on how to apply can be found on the website and in a pdf file in the related files box to the left.

For the 2023 fellowship, applicants must be U.S. citizens who will complete a master’s or other advanced degree at an accredited U.S. university between August 1, 2021, and July 31, 2023. A broad range of degrees are applicable to the fellowship because the projects are varied among the host organizations. This two-year opportunity offers a competitive salary, medical benefits, and travel and relocation expense reimbursement.  

Application packages must be submitted to the Sea Grant office in the state where you received your degree by Friday, January 27, 2023.

The fellowship begins on August 1, 2023. Information about the Coastal Management Fellowship is available here, and the Digital Coast Fellowship here. Information on eligibility requirements, how to apply, and the selection of fellows is found here.

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 listed on the fellowship “Fellow Eligibility Selection” web page and in the pdf document.

  • Letters of recommendation can be submitted through this portal separately by each letter writer coming to this page and 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.

  • Because of the required "signed" letters with this application, we suggest 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. Unofficial copies of all undergraduate and graduate student transcripts are required and are usually supplied as pdfs, which can be combined with your application or uploaded separately.

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

  • Click "Apply Now" below.
  • Where it says “Select:” in the middle column, select “Fellowship Application” from the drop down list.
  • Under “Applicant” provide all required contact information.
  • Title should be in the format “2023 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.
