Fellowship Opportunity: Margaret A. Davidson Graduate Fellowship

The Margaret A. Davidson Graduate Fellowship is a two-year fellowship program that places one graduate student at each of the 30 National Estuarine Research Reserves. Through a research project, fellows address a key reserve management need to help scientists and communities understand coastal challenges that may influence future policy and management strategies.

Request for Applications will be posted through Grants.gov every odd-numbered year, notifications are made by the following April, and fellowships begin August 1 of even-numbered years.

Eligible applicants must be admitted to or enrolled in a full-time graduate program working to obtain a master’s or doctoral degree. Applicants must have at least two years remaining in their academic course of study to apply. Pending congressional appropriations, NOAA anticipates an annual budget of up to $45,000 in direct costs for each fellow. Direct costs should support the fellows and their research and may include stipend, supplies, travel, and tuition.
