Minnesota Sea Grant's Research and Fellowship Coordinator, Alexander Frie and Fiscal Officer, Peter Thibault will discuss the John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship (Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship Program) and application process. Guest speakers Jillian Farkas and Kirsten Rhude will share their experiences as past Knauss fellows.
This event is an opportunity for graduate students interested in applying to the Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship Program and for people (e.g., faculty and staff) who may advise potential applicants to ask questions about the process and learn more about this unique educational and professional experience.
The Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship Program is offered through the National Sea Grant College Program (Sea Grant). The Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship is intended for graduate students who have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources. The Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship matches highly qualified graduate students with "hosts" in the legislative and executive branch of government located in the Washington D.C. area, for a one-year paid fellowship.
