Science Policy Fellowships, focused on leadership development and capacity building at the science-policy interface, are awarded to graduate or professional students or those who have completed their studies within the past five years and demonstrate a strong scientific or technical background, superior academic achievement, and leadership qualities. This year’s fellows will spend one year on the staff of a state environmental agency and regional offices of relevant federal agencies in the Gulf region. Fellows will be paired with a mentor when they arrive at their host offices. They will also have opportunities for professional development.
