National Coral Reef Management Fellowship

The next generation of coral reef managers can once again get hands-on training to prepare them for successful careers through the National Coral Reef Management Fellowship Program.

The program will create seven two-year positions at institutions in coral reef states and territories. Each position has its own distinct work plan, responding to the specific coral reef management needs of each coral reef jurisdiction. Fellows will work on issues affecting U.S. coral reef ecosystems including climate change, land-based sources of pollution, and fishing. The program will also provide training and professional development opportunities.

NOAA Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary is one of the largest live-bottom reefs of the southeastern United States.

Education level:  Applicants must have completed a bachelor’s degree in marine environmental sciences, or a related field, and some professional experience related to their educational history.

Geographic focus: The program will create seven two-year positions at institutions in the following coral reef states and territories: Florida, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
