Michigan Sea Grant helps to foster economic growth and protect Michigan’s coastal, Great Lakes resources through education, research and outreach.
Michigan’s coasts and the Great Lakes are a dynamic ecosystem with fluctuating water levels, many species of fish, birds, plants and other wildlife, and a wide variety of habitat types. A large boating community, commercial and recreational fisheries, and rapid development along Michigan’s coasts all present challenges for the ecosystem. Michigan Sea Grant helps to foster economic growth and protect Michigan’s coastal, Great Lakes resources through education, research and outreach. A collaborative effort of Michigan State University and the University of Michigan, Michigan Sea Grant is part of the NOAA-National Sea Grant network of 33 university-based programs.
Michigan Sea Grant Extension Fellows Program for Michigan State University Graduate Students
The Michigan Sea Grant Extension Fellows Program is designed for Michigan State University master’s or doctoral students interested in engaged scholarship for research and extension engagement within the Great Lakes Region.
The program will enable graduate students interested in community-engaged scholarship and outreach and engagement relating to global freshwater fisheries; fisheries and food security; water quality, supply, and human health; Great Lakes commerce and transportation; or telecoupled systems to develop skills for helping decision-makers and other stakeholders to clarify actions or policy options, serving as honest brokers of policy alternatives, on issues important to the sustainability of the Great Lakes Region. The program is sponsored by Michigan Sea Grant Extension, MSU Graduate School and University Outreach and Engagement.
