North Carolina Sea Grant and the N.C. Sentinel Site Cooperative, or NCSSC, are offering a joint fellowship for North Carolina-based graduate students. Recipients have an opportunity to conduct research addressing the needs of the NCSSC as identified within the Cooperative’s implementation plan. Projects must occur within or be directly applicable to the NCSSC-defined geography.

The NCSSC is one of five cooperatives implemented as part of the NOAA Sentinel Site Program.
