North Carolina Sea Grant and the N.C. Coastal Resources Law, Planning, and Policy Center are accepting applications for a fellowship opportunity for two North Carolina-based graduate students.

This fellowship fosters research addressing a coastal policy issue within the state’s 20 coastal counties, and relating to one of these broad focus areas:

  • Healthy coastal ecosystems;
  • Sustainable coastal development;
  • Safe and sustainable seafood supply;
  • Hazard resilience in coastal communities; and
  • Environmental literacy and career initiation.

Research and scholarly work conducted under this fellowship should include exploration of the legal implications of the chosen policy issue. The 3-page proposal, noting an academic advisor, is due Nov. 26, 2014.

The Center is a partnership of North Carolina Sea Grant and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Law and Department of City and Regional Planning.
