Bethune-Cookman University (B-CU) has four fellowship opportunities for Masters students in the Department of Integrated Environmental Science (IES). B-CU is a partner institution of the NOAA Center for Coastal and Marine Ecosystems (CCME), a partnership led by Florida A&M University and funded by NOAA’s Educational Partnership Program with Minority Serving Institutions (Cooperative Agreement Award #NA16SEC4810009). The NOAA CCME mission is to educate and train a new generation of scientists, particularly from underrepresented minority communities, in the NOAA-relevant STEM disciplines and social sciences needed to utilize interdisciplinary approaches to address issues confronting marine and coastal communities, with a particular focus on Coastal Intelligence, Coastal Resilience, and Place-based Conservation. The MSIES program at B-CU teaches students to integrate social, economic, and political information to develop functional approaches to address ecological and societal issues.
To be eligible, a candidate must have a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college/university in a NOAA-related discipline (e.g. biology, chemistry, environmental science, etc.), have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher, be admitted to the B-CU graduate studies program, and be a US citizen. Successful applicants receive tuition, a stipend, NOAA internships, and funds for conference travel and research expenses. To apply, a candidate must apply for the B-CU graduate studies program (https://www.cookman.edu/academics/schools/graduate/HowToApply.html) and be admitted by the application deadline (June 1, 2019 for Fall 2019 admission).
