What is a Sea Grant Knauss Marine Policy Fellow?
Established in 1979, the Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship gives graduate students or recent graduates with PhDs, Masters, and JDs an opportunity to spend one year in Washington, DC learning about the policy realm. They have studied marine, freshwater, and coastal science and policy and are experts in their fields.
What can a Sea Grant Knauss Fellow do for your office?
Fellows are more than students or interns. They are graduate students or recent graduates with PhDs, Masters, and JDs that focus on marine- or aquatic-related fields. Fellows are selected to participate in the program based on a combination of academic record, statement of career goals, recommendations and endorsements, and relevant experience. They are capable of working alongside federal partners and legislators, and are excited to learn about the process of policy-making.
Cost to host offices
Executive branch host offices will be financially assessed $60,000 for each fellow. Of the $60,000, $3,500 will be allocated to the National Sea Grant Office to cover the administration costs of the fellowship program.

OPTIONAL: Host offices may add up to $10,000 more on each grant to cover extra travel expenses for the fellow. This money will only be spent on host office-related travel for the fellow.

Before Placement Week, Executive host offices will be asked to confirm their ability to pay for a fellow if they should receive one. Transfer of funds will not occur until after Placement Week (December/January).
