The best aspect about education is that it
can go beyond the classroom. It is one thing
to sit in a classroom and learn facts through
a textbook. It is an entirely different matter
to have the opportunity to take what you
have learned in the classroom and apply it
to the real world. The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration understands
the importance of these out-of-classroom
educational opportunities, which is why
they offer “scholarships, internships, fellowships
and post docs for undergraduate
and graduate students.” Read on for a quick
run-through of each of the scholarships,
fellowships and post doc opportunities on
offer.
First is the Ernest F. Hollings
Undergraduate Scholarship. Through this
scholarship, 125 undergraduate students,
who are studying in NOAA mission fields,
earn a 10-week summer internship at an
NOAA facility or a partner facility, as well as
two years of academic support.
Next is the Educational Partnership
Program Undergraduate Scholarship. This
scholarship consists of two years of support
for undergraduate study and two summer
internships for “rising junior students
from Minority Serving Institutions majoring
in fields that directly support NOAA’s mission.”
Then comes the Dr. Nancy Foster
Scholarship. This scholarship is designed
to support all individuals, but particularly
women and minority groups, who are
engaged in graduate level studies in studies
related to science, engineering and
social science, as well as in resource
management involving ocean and coastal
areas.
Fourth is the John A. Knauss Marine
Policy Fellowship. This fellowship, according
to a provided flyer, is “a unique educational
experience for graduate students
who have an interest in ocean, coastal and
Great Lakes resources and in the national
policy affecting those resources.”
Fifth is the National Coral Reef
Management Fellowship. This fellowship

consists of “seven two-year positions at
institutions in coral reef states and territories
to train the next generation of coral
reef managers.”
Sixth is the NOAA Coastal Management
Fellowship. Through this fellow, six postgraduate
students work on two-year state
developed projects, by being matched
up “with state coastal zone management
programs.”
And, last but not least, are the available
post doc positions. More than 200 of
these positions can be found “through the
National Research Council and University
Corporation for Atmospheric Research.”
These are only a handful of the many
different educational opportunities provided
by the NOAA. If you are interested

internships, fellowships and post
doc opportunities offered by the NOAA,
