Fellowships to USA and territories graduate students in eligible Ph.D. programs for workforce development and training related to marine ecosystems and marine resources. Eligible uses of funding may include fees, tuition, travel, stipend, equipment, and supplies. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities to students who are interested in careers related to population and ecosystem dynamics and marine resource economics with applications to living marine resources.
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.
Population and Ecosystem Dynamics: This fellowship focuses on the development and implementation of quantitative methods for assessing marine ecosystems, for assessing the status of fish, invertebrate, and other targeted species stocks, and for assessing the status of marine mammals, seabirds, and other protected species.
Marine Resource Economics: This fellowship focuses on the development and implementation of quantitative methods for assessing the economics of the conservation and management of living marine resources.
The goals of the NOAA Fisheries/Sea Grant Fellowship Program are:
To help achieve the goals of the fellowship, each Fellow will be required to work closely with an expert (mentor) from NOAA Fisheries who may provide data for a fellow's thesis, serve on the fellow's committee, and/or host an annual summer internship at the participating NOAA Fisheries facility. Mentors will be from participating NOAA Fisheries Science Centers or offices. participating NMFS Science Centers or offices and may be a source of matching funds.
