NOAA Knauss Marine Policy Graduate Fellowship:
NOAA's Sea Grant is offering two informational webinars about the Sea Grant Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship to EPP Scholars and graduate students at EPP institutions. Program leaders will discuss the purpose and benefits of the Knauss Fellowship, tips on applying, and hear from Jeanette Davis, an EPP alumna and current Knauss Fellow about her experiences and advice. Janice Sessing, a Knauss alumna, will share her post-fellowship experiences and discuss different career pathways.
The Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship supports graduate students interested in learning how science influences policy and how policy impacts science. Fellows spend a year in a federal agency in Washington, DC or on Capitol Hill, with a $45,000 stipend and additional travel funds to support their continuing education.
Please encourage your students, particularly graduate students in all programs to attend one of the two scheduled events. There will be time for a Q&A session, and both webinars will be recorded for scholars to view anytime. Questions can be directed to Julia Galkiewicz (email@example.com; 301-734-1067).
