The Frank M. Cushing Science Policy Fellowship is a fellowship for marine science postdoctoral scholars and doctoral candidates interested in bridging the gap between science and policy by spending a year in Washington DC researching, developing and advocating for research and sound ocean policy.
Frank Cushing was widely appreciated for his mentorship of young policy makers and his willingness to spend time sharing his expertise, experience and influence with the science community. This fellowship is designed to expose young ocean scientists to navigating the inside-the-beltway political landscape that Frank negotiated so successfully and for them to learn about the major contributions that he made to science.
