The Schlanger Ocean Drilling Fellowship Program offers merit-based awards for outstanding graduate students to conduct research related to the International Ocean Discovery Program. The $30,000 per year award is to be used for stipend, tuition, benefits, research costs, and travel. Research may be directed toward the objectives of specific expeditions or may address broader themes.
The Fellowship year will begin in either June or August (summer or fall semester) 2014. During the summer of 2015, at the conclusion of the fellowship, Schlanger Fellows travel to Ocean Leadership headquarters in Washington, D.C., to present the initial results of their research and take part in U.S. Science Support Program related activities. The application deadline is November 15, 2013. (Note: Ocean Leadership is not accepting fellowship applications in 2014.)
