NAS GRP Fellowship Opportunities Currently Accepting Applications!


The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Gulf Research Program  (GRP) is currently accepting applications for three fellowship opportunities:

The Gulf Research Program’s Science Policy Fellows (SPF) gain first-hand experience at the interface of science and policy as they spend one year alongside decision-makers at agencies across Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. Applications are due by February 7th, 2024

The Gulf Research Program’s Early-Career Research Fellowship (ECRF) supports emerging scientific leaders as they take risks on research ideas not yet tested, pursue unique collaborations, and build a network of colleagues who share their interest in improving the well-being of coastal communities and ecosystems. We currently have two tracks accepting application for this fellowship (see below). For both tracks, applications are due by March 6, 2024

  • ECRF Human Health and Community Resilience Track goal focuses on contributing to the understanding of the role that resilience-based interventions play in addressing the root causes of climate, disaster, and/or health vulnerability that are associated with health disparities in communities throughout the Gulf of Mexico region.
  • ECRF Offshore Energy Safety track goal focuses on contributing to the understanding, management, and reduction of systemic risk in offshore energy activities. Note: Experience in research pertaining to the identification and reduction of systemic risk in other industries is also desired.
