2017 John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellows

The Sea Grant Knauss Fellowship provides a unique educational and professional experience to graduate students who have an interest in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes resources and in the national policy decisions affecting those resources.

The Fellowship, named after one of Sea Grant’s founders, former NOAA Administrator, John A. Knauss, matches highly qualified graduate students with “hosts” in the legislative and executive branch of government located in the Washington, D.C. area, for a one year paid fellowship.

Joining this year’s Fellowship class is recent CMBC graduate, Dr. Noah Ben-Aderet. Noah will be the eighteenth CMBC graduate to receive this award in the last eight years.  As a Legislative Fellow, Noah had been placed in the office of U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon.
