John Fear,

North Carolina Sea Grant and the N.C. Coastal Reserve and National Estuarine Research Reserve are accepting applications for the 2023 North Carolina Coastal Research Fellowship. The deadline is Friday, March 17, at 5 p.m. ET.

Through this program, graduate students based in North Carolina conduct hypothesis-based research within one or more of the 10 sites that constitute the Coastal Reserve. The Reserve is especially interested in projects that include work at one or more of its state sites: Kitty Hawk Woods, Buxton Woods, Buckridge, Permuda Island, Bald Head Woods, and Bird Island Reserves.

Research should address one or more of these coastal management issues:

North Carolina Sea Grant and the N.C. Coastal Reserve strongly encourage proposals from graduate students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Minority Serving Institutions, 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.

“This fellowship program, entering its second decade of service to North Carolina graduate students, is looking to continue its strong track record of student training and research results for the Reserve System,” says John Fear, deputy director for North Carolina Sea Grant. “I look forward to proposals from our universities’ main campuses and students at coastal labs.”

North Carolina Sea Grant and the N.C. Coastal Reserve anticipate awarding one new fellowship for $10,000. Proposals are due Friday, March 17, at 5 p.m. ET.
