The Sea Grant John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship Program provides 30 to 50 students per year with a full year of experience working on marine issues in a Congressional staff office or in a federal agency such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Science Foundation, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Applications are encouraged from students enrolled in graduate or professional programs who have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources.

Since the Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship Program was initiated in 1979, it has allowed more than 650 students to share their expertise with policy makers in Washington, D.C., to see firsthand how science is used in the policy arena, and to participate in policy making.

Alaska students must apply through the Alaska Sea Grant office, which may forward up to five applications for consideration by the National Sea Grant program. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Alaska Sea Grant as early as possible.
