A unique professional opportunity for nearly or recently finished graduate students interested in the science and policy to keep our marine resources healthy.

Modeled after the prestigious Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship, the state fellowship provides on-the-job experience in the planning and implementation of marine resource policies and programs in Alaska. The program matches accomplished, motivated graduate students and recent graduates with hosts in Alaska-based state or federal agencies and organizations for a 12-month paid fellowship.

For fellowships starting in 2021, each fellow will receive a $50,500 stipend for the 12-month assignment ($4,208/month). Additional funds will be available to cover health insurance and fellowship-related travel. Additional travel associated with the fellowship may be covered by the host agency.
