The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has announced that applications for its National Coral Reef Management Fellowship are now open.
The fellowship is a two-year program established to respond to the need for additional coral reef management capacity in NOAA’s seven priority states and territories (referred to as jurisdictions).
Those locations include:
- American Samoa,
- The Northern Mariana Islands,
- Puerto Rico, and
- U.S. Virgin Islands
According to NOAA:
“The fellowship provides state and territorial coral reef management agencies with highly qualified candidates whose education and work experience meet each jurisdictions specific needs, while providing the individual fellows with professional experience in coastal and coral reef resources management.”
The submission deadline for the 2024-2026 Fellowship is July 20, 2023.
