Marc Hershman Marine Policy Fellowship
The submission period for the 2013 fellowship is now closed. Please check back in March 2014 for information about the 2014 fellowship.
This program places four graduate students or recent graduates for one year with host offices in Olympia, Seattle and Tacoma, Washington, working on ocean and coastal science and management issues. The Hershman Fellowship offers a first-hand experience in crafting marine and natural resource policies and enables fellows to share their academic expertise with state decision makers. Host offices for 2013-2014 are the Department of Health, Department of Ecology, the Puget Sound Partnership and The Nature Conservancy. Projects for 2013-2014 include coastal hazards, harmful algal blooms, marine spatial planning, pathogens reduction and control, and marine protection strategies in Puget Sound.
