North Carolina Sea Grant and North Carolina Space Grant offer a graduate research fellowship focused on addressing high-priority research needs within North Carolina’s nearshore environs and coastal watersheds. Interdisciplinary proposals from across the state are welcome. Proposed projects should apply relevant measurement instruments and/or remote-sensing data sources from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), or other data sources. The start date is flexible but must be after June 1, 2022. All work must be completed by May 31, 2023.
We strongly encourage proposals from graduate students at HBCUs and MSIs and/or from traditionally underserved and underrepresented communities, as well as from graduate students who can demonstrate how their work and related outreach will benefit underserved and underrepresented communities.
Closed. Check back next year.
