Sea Grant is recruiting graduate and professional students for three national environmental fellowships. These are paid, 1-2 year fellowships that offer excellent networking and career building opportunities. These are particularly appropriate for graduate students that are close to the end of their program in environmental science, policy, or law and have an interest marine and aquatic issues. Below is a short description of each. Please forward to potential candidates!
