Since 2015, APNEP and the North Carolina Sea Grant have jointly funded a graduate student fellowship to conduct applied research within the North Carolina portion of the APNEP management area. Fellows conduct research that addresses focus areas identified in the NC Sea Grant Strategic Plan and management actions from APNEP's Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan. 

We are current accepting 2023 fellowship applications! If you are interested applying, you can find requirements and materials on the Sea Grant website. The deadline for proposals is October 30, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.
