North Carolina Sea Grant and the N.C. Sentinel Site Cooperative (NCSSC) offer 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 and 2017 NCSSC Partners Meeting NOAA Technical Memo. Projects must occur within the NCSSC defined geography, which encompasses the 20 coastal counties in North Carolina, plus Jones and Martin counties.
