The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Sea Grant College Program (Sea Grant) is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2024 class of the John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship program. The 85 early-career professionals selected will be placed in federal government offices throughout Washington, D.C., and join the over 1,600 individuals who have participated in the program since its inception in 1979.

The Knauss fellowship is a one-year paid opportunity for current and recent graduates from advanced degree programs to apply their scientific knowledge and experiences to lasting careers in the sciences, policy, and public administration.

I am exceedingly grateful to Dr. Feng and Dr. Schuler for their strong recommendation letters and guidance for the fellowship application process. They, together with Dr. Chopping also supported my successful application and selection for the Environmental Defense Climate Corp Fellowship earlier this year.
