Provided through a partnership between the USGS National Climate Adaptation Science Center (NCASC) and Michigan State University (MSU). 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.
The program is open to Master’s and Doctoral students at any Climate Adaptation Science Center consortium. In the Northwest, these institutions are University of Washington, Western Washington University, Washington State University, Boise State University and University of Montana. Students must be enrolled at the institution for the entire fellowship year.
Applications for the 2019 Science to Action Fellowship will be accepted starting November 1, 2018. Statements of Interest are due by January 25, 2019. Learn more about the requirements here.
