We are excited to announce the opportunity to apply for a Science to Action Fellowship, provided through the USGS National Climate Adaptation Science Center (NCASC). This program supports Master’s and Doctoral Students in directly applying scientific research related to climate change impacts on fish, wildlife or ecosystems to decision-making about natural resources.
During this one-year fellowship and beyond, Fellows benefit from collaborations with university and USGS mentors, from interactions with other colleagues and partners of USGS, and from exposure to high-priority, real-world challenges in the natural resources policy arena. Preference will be given to applicants with a clear research-management/policy link.
The program is open to Master’s and Doctoral students at any Climate Adaptation Science Center consortium institution (see map below). In the Northwest, these institutions are University of Washington, Western Washington University, Washington State University, Oregon State University, Boise State University and University of Montana. Students must be enrolled at the institution for the entire fellowship year.
The National Climate Adaptation Science Center will be accepting Statements of Interest through January 31, 2020. Learn more about the requirements here. For more information about the NW Climate Adaptation Science Center, contact the consortium Co-PI at your university.
