The joint North Carolina Space Grant – North Carolina Sea Grant Graduate Research Fellowship Program invites interdisciplinary proposals from across the state. The fellowship requires the use of data from vast archives and remote-sensing capabilities available through the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to address a high-priority research need within North Carolina’s nearshore environs, coastal areas, watersheds, or human activities in these areas (e.g. aquaculture). Successful proposals must adeptly utilize relevant measurement instruments and/or remote-sensing data sources from NASA, NOAA, or other sources that can include, but are not limited to, radiometers, spectroradiometers, satellite sensors, LIDAR, aerial imagery, and other data collected from airplanes, unmanned aerial vehicles, and/or unpiloted submersibles in the execution of the proposed work.
North Carolina Space Grant – North Carolina Sea Grant is accepting applications for the 2023-2024 academic year for a one-year Graduate Research Fellowship. Applicants must be a full-time, enrolled graduate student at an accredited college or university within North Carolina and citizen of the United States. The proposed research must be supervised by a faculty mentor. The research activity should continue for the duration of the fellowship period. The start date is flexible but must start after June 1, 2023. All work must be completed by May 31, 2024. Fellows are required to present their research findings at a meeting, conference, or other formal gathering of professional organization(s), association(s), etc. among peer researchers, policymakers, or another relevant audience.
Deadline: March 31, 2023
