The National Sea Grant Federal Fellows Program
Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowships
The Knauss Fellowship, established in 1979, provides a unique educational experience to students who have an interest in ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources. The program matches highly qualified graduate students with "hosts" in the U.S. Congress or executive branch of government located in the Washington, D.C. area, for a one-year paid fellowship.
The 2014-2015 fellowship includes a stipend of $45,000, $9,000 for health insurance, and $2,500 for Placement Week costs for a one-year (non-renewable) appointment.

Fellowships are open to graduate students who are enrolled in a graduate or professional program with a marine or aquatic-related science or policy interest at an United States accredited institution of higher education. Qualified graduate students who are enrolled in Maryland or District of Columbia institutions may apply for this fellowship through the Maryland Sea Grant College program.
The application process begins in November, with a letter from the Director of the Office of Sea Grant to all university Sea Grant directors announcing the program and outlining conditions for candidacy for the fellowship.
