To support a graduate student on an internship in Washington, D.C. gaining valuable first-hand experience of our nation's government by working on the staff of a federal agency dealing with marine affairs.


The National Sea Grant College Program's Federal Fellows Program is designed to provide our country's superior young graduate students with an opportunity to share their expertise and to gain experience on marine affairs and issues at the national level. This will accelerate the student's career development and help to assure that the brightest minds are working on marine issues.


Rochelle Sturtevant will be appointed as a Graduate Research Associate or a Research Assistant for the period of her fellowship. She will receive a monthly stipend and living allowance while she is in Washington. Her particular staff assignment will be determined during a one-week visitation and interview session in Washington in early December 1995. Ms. Sturtevant is a self-started and highly motivated individual who will do well in this interview process.
