Summer Graduate Research Stipend in Coastal Ecosystems and Human Health
The University of Connecticut is one of four recipients of a traineeship grant from the NOAA Oceans and Human Health Initiative. The Interdisciplinary Research and Training Initiative on Coastal Ecosystems and Human Heath (I-RICH), University of Connecticut, focuses on coastal ecosystems and human health. The Connecticut Sea Grant College Program, as a partner in I-RICH, offers a $3,000 summer stipend for a graduate student not currently funded by I-RICH, but who is able to contribute to the mission of the program via efforts in one of the following focus areas: marine pathogens and diseases, pollutants, or harmful algal blooms.

Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship
CLOSED Check back in 2014
This fellowship provides a unique educational experience to students who have an interest in marine/ocean/Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources. It is open to all students enrolled in a graduate or professional program in a marine- or aquatic-related field at a U.S.–accredited institution of higher learning. The fellowship allows students to share their expertise with policy makers in Washington, D.C., and provides a first-hand look at how science is used in the policy arena and how decisions are made. Applications from prospective fellows to the applicant’s local state Sea Grant College.
Interested students must discuss this fellowship with the local Sea Grant Program Director. In Connecticut, that's Dr. Sylvain De Guise. To download the announcement, click HERE.

Two graduate fellowships are available for a project entitled “Supporting cost-efficient adaptation planning in the North Atlantic”, a collaboration between the Sea Grant programs from Maine to Virginia and the NOAA North Atlantic Regional Team. The fellow will contribute to a larger North Atlantic project which seeks to address some of the unique regional issues facing coastal communities throughout the North Atlantic including anticipated physical, social, economic and environmental impacts, existing resources and guidelines for climate change adaptation, current approaches to climate change adaptation planning, and challenges and opportunities for developing adaptation strategies.
