The Doyle Fellowship

Primary tabs

N.H. Sea Grant's Brian E. Doyle Undergraduate Marine Extension Fellowship offers incoming juniors and seniors from any four-year college or university in New Hampshire the opportunity to receive hands-on training in one of five fields:

  • Fisheries/aquaculture
  • Marine literacy
  • Coastal communities/climate adaptation
  • Healthy coastal ecosystems
  • Communications

Fellows spend the summer working with NHSG staff seeking to help individuals and organizations make informed decisions regarding our marine resources.

The fellowship program honors the memory of NHSG's former associate director, who passed away in 2008 after more than 25 years with the program. It seeks to interest students in connecting marine-related research to extension, education and communications activities. Successful applicants will receive a $3,000 stipend over an eight-week internship.
