The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Gulf Research Program currently has two fellowship programs accepting applications that may be of interest to your students and colleagues. Attached is a flyer on these opportunities that you are welcome to distribute across your institution.

 The vision of the Gulf Research Program (GRP) is “a more safe, resilient and sustainable future for the Gulf and all those who call the region home”. As part of this vision, the GRP invests in the education and capacity building of scientists and policy-makers by providing fellowship opportunities for emerging leaders and early-career professionals.

 The Gulf Research program is currently accepting applications for the Science Policy Fellowship and Early-Career Research Fellowship, both exciting opportunities for graduating students and/or early career professionals interested in issues at the intersection of human health and community resilience, environmental protection, and offshore energy system safety.

 Science Policy Fellowship: is a year-long opportunity for scientists to hone their skills and gain first-hand experience working alongside the staff at federal, state or local agencies working to benefit the Gulf Coast ecosystem and communities.

 Why apply?

 Fellows will:

  • Learn to put their education to practice. Our past fellows have worked on projects around policy development, evaluation, data and grant management, restoration planning and stakeholder outreach.
  •  Gain invaluable professional experiences and networking opportunities, paving potential career prospects following the fellowship year. For a list of potential 2020 host offices, please click here.
  • Receive an annual stipend and an additional $5,000 to spend on professional development activities. 

The application deadline is March 4, 2020. For eligibility requirements and further information, including how to apply, please visit our science policy fellowship page.

 Early-Career Research Fellowship: is designed to support emerging scientific leaders with funds to take risks on research ideas, pursue unique collaborations and network with colleagues to improve offshore energy system safety and the well-being of coastal communities and ecosystems.

 Why apply?

 Each fellow will receive:

  • $75,000 of funds to pursue their research over the course of two years.
  • Career mentorship from a senior-level researcher at their affiliated institution. The mentor will receive an award of $1,000 as an honorarium.

The application deadline is February 19, 2020. For eligibility requirements and further information, including how to apply, please visit our early-career fellowship page.
