  • Applications may be submitted by a graduate student close to completing his/her degree (Masters, Ph.D., or J.D) in a field related to conservation, management, protection, stewardship, public policy, or law of marine, coastal, and/or watershed environments, or areas that impact those environments, at a California university.
  • Graduate students who recently completed their degree at a California university with graduation date [i.e. date the degree was awarded by the university] after May 1, 2019 are also eligible to apply.
  • Applicants should address their degree of interest and experience in either marine/coastal/watershed science, natural resource management, public policy, and/or law.  Fellows must complete all degree requirements before starting the fellowship.


Each fellow will receive $48,264 in stipend for the twelve-month assignment ($4,022/month). Additional funds of $3,240 will be available for health insurance reimbursement ($270/month) and $2,472 to cover travel to the matching workshop, state fellow’s in-person meeting, and other fellowship related travel. Additional travel associated with the fellowship may be covered by the host agency at the agency’s discretion.
