Graduate Research Fellowship Program
The National Estuarine Research Reserve System’s Graduate Research Fellowship provides master’s degree students and Ph.D. candidates with an opportunity to conduct research of local and national significance that focuses on enhancing coastal zone management. Fellows do their research within a National Estuarine Research Reserve and gain hands-on experience by participating in their host reserve’s research and monitoring programs. Graduate Research Fellowship projects are based on the reserves’ local needs, the reserve system’s national priorities, and the students’ interest. For more information, visit http://nerrs.noaa.gov. Please note: Due to budget constraints, the GRF program is currently not accepting new applicants.
Unpaid internships in coastal science and environmental learning are available to students and teachers of biology, marine biology, environmental studies, science education, and related fields. Please call for more information.
