Michigan Sea Grant Fellowship Opportunities! Apply Now for 2015 and 2016

Are you interested in Great Lakes or marine issues — or know someone who might be? Michigan Sea Grant is recruiting applicants for paid fellowship programs! The fellowships offer terrific career-building and networking opportunities, real-world training, a salary and benefits, and a chance to explore careers that combine science and policy.

Graduate students with a wide range of backgrounds (i.e., natural or physical sciences, policy, law) and a strong interest in Great Lakes, coastal, aquatic or marine issues are encouraged to apply.

Programs require a full-time commitment, and fellows typically graduate from their degree program before embarking on the fellowship.

Please pass this information along to those you think might be interested. If you’d like to print a copy of the flyer to distribute to your department, please do! Here’s the PDF version. Also, look for additional fellowship opportunities from Michigan Sea Grant soon!
