Group of Knauss Fellow graduate students standing in front of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.

Located in Washington, D.C., the Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship provides a unique educational and professional experience to graduate students who have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources, and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources. This is a one-year fellowship open to any student, regardless of citizenship, who is enrolled towards a degree in a graduate or professional program on the day of the deadline.

Application deadline for the Knauss Fellowship is February 16, 2023.

Students enrolled at an Illinois or Indiana university or college should submit their applications through Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant by emailing Angela Archer at amcbride@purdue.edu.
