Washington DC

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Sea Grant College Program is pleased to announce the finalists for the 2024 class of the John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship program. The 85 early-career professionals selected will be placed in federal government offices throughout Washington, D.C., and join the over 1,600 individuals who have participated in the program since its inception in 1979.

The Knauss fellowship is a one-year paid opportunity for current and recent graduates from advanced degree programs to apply their scientific knowledge and experiences to lasting careers in the sciences, policy, and public administration.

“Knauss fellows over the years have consistently and thoughtfully applied their unique knowledge and skillsets to developing solutions to issues that affect people across the nation. We look forward to welcoming the incoming class of fellows and have no doubt that they will continue the tradition of serving through science.” – Jonathan Pennock, Ph.D., National Sea Grant College Program Director
