The National Coral Reef Management Fellowship Program is a partnership 
between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Coral Reef 
Conservation Program, the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Office of 
Insular Affairs, the U.S. All Islands Coral Reef Committee and Nova 
Southeastern University’s Halmos College of Natural Sciences and 
Oceanography. The program seeks to build the next generation of coral 
reef conservation leaders and supports two-year positions that strive to 
address current capacity gaps, as well as build long-term management 
capacity in the jurisdictions by placing highly qualified individuals 
whose education and work experience meet each jurisdiction’s specific 
coral reef management needs.

The seven jurisdictions where fellows will be placed include: the U.S. 
Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Florida, Hawai'i, the Commonwealth of the 
Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and American Samoa. The start date for 
the two-year positions is January 2018.

Each position has its own distinct work plan specific to jurisdiction 
management needs and provides training and professional development 
opportunities. Project work will focus on climate change, land-based 
sources of pollution and fishing impacts to coral reef ecosystems. 
Fellows may also work to address local needs such as the development of 
management plans for marine managed areas, engagement of stakeholders in 
resource management, and development of climate change adaptation plans.

The deadline for applications is July 11, 2017.
