The California State Fellows Program provides a unique educational opportunity for graduate students at California higher education institutions who are interested both in marine resources and in the policy decisions affecting those resources in California.
Modeled after the highly successful national Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship Program, the State Fellows Program provides an opportunity to acquire “on the job” experience in the planning and implementation of marine and/or coastal resource policies and programs in the state of California. The program mathces highly motivated and qualified graduate students and recent graduates with “hosts” in State or Federal agencies in California for a 12-month paid fellowship ($3,450 per month).
This year, 16 organizations are available as hosts.

In October 25h finalists applications will be distributed to participating hosts and in November there will be a matching workshop with hosts and fellowship finalists. The fellowship begins in December-January of 2014.
