Closes at: 4:00 PM Eastern on Friday, January 24, 2014.
Applications are now being accepted for the NMFS – Sea Grant Joint Fellowship Program in Marine Resource Economics.
The Graduate Fellowship Program generally awards two new PhD fellowships each year to students who are interested in careers related to the development and implementation of quantitative methods for assessing the economics of the conservation and management of living marine resources. Fellows will work on thesis problems of public interest and relevance to NMFS under the guidance of NMFS mentors at participating NMFS Science Centers or Laboratories. The NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowships in Marine Resource Economics meets NOAA’s Mission goal of “Protect, Restore and Manage the Use of Coastal and Ocean Resources Through Ecosystem-Based Management”.
Graduate students at New York institutions should submit through the New York Sea Grant program. Please follow all instructions as conveyed in the Federal Funding Opportunity announcement from Grants.Gov: 2014 NMFS-Sea Grant Fellowships in Marine Resource Economics.
