FELLOWSHIPS

The GRP provides fellowships to support the development of future generations of scientists, engineers, and health professionals prepared to work at the intersections of offshore energy system safety, environmental protection, and health and community resilience. The GRP currently runs two fellowship programs directly—Early-Career Research Fellowships and Science Policy Fellowships—and provides support to one other National Academies’ fellowship program: Christine Mirzayan Science & Technology Policy Graduate Fellowship.

2019 EARLY-CAREER RESEARCH FELLOWS

The Early-Career Research Fellowship program supports emerging scientific leaders as they 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.

TOTAL

In 2019, the GRP supported 31 new fellows across the 3 programs with awards totaling $2,024,000.

In 2019, 20 individuals received awards totaling $1,500,000 as the fifth class of Early-Career Research Fellows:

2019 SCIENCE POLICY FELLOWS

The Science Policy Fellowship program helps scientists hone their skills by putting them to practice for the benefit of Gulf Coast communities and ecosystems. Fellows gain first-hand experience at the interface of science and policy as they spend 1 year on the staff of federal, state, local, or nongovernmental environmental, natural resource, oil and gas, and public health agencies in the Gulf of Mexico region.

In 2019, 10 individuals received awards totaling $515,000 as the fourth class of Science Policy Fellows:

Each year, the Gulf Research Program (GRP) produces an annual report to summarize how funds were used. These reports review accomplishments, highlight activities, and, over time, will assess metrics to determine how the program is progressing in accomplishing its goals. The 2019 annual report is the sixth report in this series.

The GRP is an independent, science-based program founded in 2013. Through grants, fellowships, and other activities, it seeks to enhance oil system safety and the protection of human health and the environment in the Gulf of Mexico region and other areas along the U.S. outer continental shelf with offshore oil and gas operations.
