Gulf Research Program

Hear from past fellows...
Science policy work is essential in building the resilience of Gulf Coast communities and ecosystems—but for many scientists, it can feel daunting to get their feet wet. Our Science Policy Fellows hone their skills alongside decision-makers in the Gulf of Mexico region, gaining invaluable experience in making scientific information not just useful, but usable.

Science Policy Fellows gain first-hand experience at the intersection of science and policy as they spend one year on the staff of federal, state, local, or non-governmental environmental, natural resource, oil and gas, and public health agencies in the Gulf of Mexico region. 

Interested in joining our group of distinguished current and past Science Policy Fellows? Submit your application by March 6!

The early-career stage is a critical one for up-and-coming researchers, but the relatively unrestricted funding provided by our Early-Career Research Fellowship allows fellows the independence, flexibility, and support they need to pursue untested research ideas and unique collaborations.

Early-Career Research Fellows take risks on research ideas not yet tested, pursue unique collaborations, and build a network of colleagues who share their interest in improving offshore energy system safety and the well-being of coastal communities and ecosystems
Learn about the work of our current and past Early-Career Research Fellows. Applications are due by February 20!
