About the Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship
The John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship Program, sponsored by NOAA’s National Sea Grant College Program, provides a unique educational experience to graduate students who have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources.
The Fellowship, named after one of Sea Grant’s founders, former NOAA Administrator, John A. Knauss, matches highly qualified graduate students with “hosts” in the legislative and executive branch of government located in the Washington, D.C. area, for a one year paid fellowship.
Successful applicants will spend one year (February 1, 2021 – January 31, 2022) in a legislative or executive host office in the Washington, DC area. An eligible applicant is any student, regardless of citizenship, who, on February 21, 2020, is enrolled towards a degree in a graduate or professional program (in an accredited U.S. institution).
