The Brian E. Doyle Undergraduate Marine Extension Fellowship is an opportunity for incoming juniors and seniors from any four-year institution in N.H. to take the first step into a possible career. You will be working hands-on with professionals to help individuals and organizations make informed decisions regarding our marine resources.
This undergraduate fellowship program is named in honor of NHSG's long-time associate director who was a champion of Sea Grant and of undergraduate education. This competitive program seeks to focus students on connecting research to extension, education and communications as members of the NHSG team.
The Doyle Fellowship provides a wide range of opportunities for students to participate in extension program areas including:
Fisheries and Aquaculture: sustainble fishing practices, fish and shellfish production or seafood marketing
Marine Literacy: floating lab, Great Bay Discovery Cruises or the Marine Docent Program
Coastal Communities and Climate Adaptation: storm water mitigation and community adaptation planning
Communications: science writing, video production or social media development
Coastal Research Volunteers: volunteer/researcher recruiting, business plan development, trainings, social media development
Students interested in applying for a 2013 Doyle Fellowship should submit a two-page statement of interest and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member or advisor. Statements of interest should include a NHSG extension program area that the student would like to work in as well as any particular goal(s) the applicant would like to achieve during his or her fellowship. Fellows will be asked to present their projects at a NHSG event during the following academic year.
Successful applicants will receive a $3,000 stipend for the summer fellowship. While start and end dates are negotiable, fellows are expected to work the equivalent of eight 30-hour weeks.
Applications are due April 8, 2013. For more information or to submit your statement of interest and letter of recommendation, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
