Water Institute Faculty and students:


Please see graduate fellowship opportunity below.  These are only open to students at SE CASC consortium organizations so the pool should be relatively small compared to other national fellowships.  Statements of interest are due January 31, 2021.

SE CASC Faculty Affiliates:
Happy New Year to all!

I wanted to make you aware of a fellowship opportunity sponsored by USGS, the Science to Action Fellowship program, which supports graduate students in developing a product that puts science into action, directly applying scientific research related to climate change impacts on fish, wildlife, or ecosystems to decision making about natural resources.


This fellowship is open to graduate students at all Climate Adaptation Science Center consortium organizations, so in our case, students at NC State as well as our Consortium partners, Auburn, Duke, Univ of FL, Univ of SC, and Univ. of TN.


Statements of interest are due January 31, 2021 via this portal.


The Science to Action Fellowship was developed to:

  • Expose graduate students to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) through the USGS National Climate Adaptation Science Center (NCASC), whose mission is to provide scientific information, tools, and techniques to help natural and cultural resource managers anticipate and adapt to the impacts of climate change on fish, wildlife, and ecosystems.
  • Support graduate students in developing a policy-relevant product related to the impacts of climate change on fish, wildlife, their habitats, and users. This product should put science into action, applying scientific research directly to decision making about natural resources. It may be related to the graduate student’s own research, and if so, may present a unique opportunity to enhance and share research with a broader community of decision makers.
  • Provide students the opportunity to interact with the USGS community and others outside of academia.
