The California Sea Grant College Program is soliciting applications for the California State Fellowship Program for a special opportunity in 2008. The State Fellow Program provides a unique educational opportunity for graduate students who are interested both in marine resources and in the policy decisions affecting those resources. This special opportunity provides an opening for one motivated and qualified graduate student to receive a 9-month paid fellowship ($2,750 per month) in the Ocean Resources Management Program of the California Resources Agency located in Sacramento, CA.
The California Ocean Resources Management Program is responsible for the coordination of all state ocean resource management programs in addition to advising the Governorís office on ocean related policy decisions. Assistant Secretary for Ocean and Coastal Policy, Brian Baird, directs the Program and is the Resources Agency lead for state ocean policy. He also serves as the chair of the national Coastal States Organization and various other boards and panels. The Ocean Resources Management Programís broad scope will allow a Sea Grant Fellow to have unprecedented interaction with a broad cross-section of state and national leaders in ocean protection, management, and research.
The California Ocean Resources Management Program is located within the California Resources Agency, a cabinet level agency led by the Secretary for Resources that presides over all of the State of Californiaís resource departments, boards, and commissions. To date, the Ocean Program has hosted six Sea Grant fellows, all of whom went on to pursue careers concerning ocean, coastal, or Great Lakes protection, management, or research.
