Science Serving Maryland's Coasts

Ocean Acidification Graduate Research Fellowship

The NOAA Ocean Acidification Program (OAP)/Mid-Atlantic Sea Grant (MASGP) Ocean Acidification Graduate Research Fellowship 

The overall goal of this fellowship is to develop ocean acidification (OA) researchers who can respond rapidly to the anticipated ocean acidification in the Mid-Atlantic region. This two-year fellowship provides hands-on experience in translating research results to coastal and marine stakeholders through a professional mentor and offers unique professional development training opportunities. While supporting other exceptional graduate students already engaged in education and research that furthers the goals of the MASGP and OAP, the Ocean Acidification Graduate Research Fellow will address issues relevant to coastal ecosystems and communities related to coastal and ocean acidification in order to improve understanding of the potential ecological consequences of increasing carbon dioxide concentration in regional coastal waters.

Potential OA Fellows must already be enrolled in an accredited university and have an academic advisor who will act as the primary mentor for their education and research. 

Proposal Submission Proposals must be submitted online via Virginia's eSeaGrant portal ( by 5:00 pm ET on Friday, April 13, 2018. If you plan to apply, we strongly recommend registering for eSeaGrant at least two weeks in advance of the deadline.
