The Maryland Sea Grant College is accepting proposals for the 2015 Coastal Resilience and Sustainability Fellows Program.

Fellows should be engaged in coastal resilience research that is relevant to Maryland and the Maryland Sea Grant Strategic Plan 2014-2017. Such research might include the wise use of water resources, climate change adaptation, coastal processes studies, resilience from natural hazards, resilient coastal businesses, and industries including fisheries and tourism, and other topics.

Fellows must be enrolled in or admitted to a full-time graduate or professional degree program at a Maryland or District of Columbia academic institution at a graduate level.

The fellowship provides a total award of up to $45,000 in Sea Grant funds budgeted over 12 to 24 months (matching funds required). In addition to supporting some of the student’s academic expenses, the fellowship will provide additional professional development opportunities in science communication, the science-to-management process and other relevant Sea Grant activities. Proposals are due March 30, 2015.

For more information, please visit our webpage for this fellowship or contact Dr. Mike Allen at mallen@mdsg.umd.edu or 301-405-6372.
