Incoming PhD student awarded prestigious NOAA fellowship

Sean Bath, an incoming graduate student, has been selected as a 2016 NOAA Knauss Fellow. The award recognizes exceptional students with an interest in ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources and policy.

Incoming PhD student Sean Bath, a graduate of the College of Charleston, is coming to USC to work with Dr. Kirstin Dow on a range of coastal issues. Along the way, he will spend a year in Washington, DC working directly with government officials and agencies on coastal policy. This invaluable hands-on experience comes as part of a John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship, awarded annually by the NOAA Sea Grant program. More information on the Knauss Fellowship is available here, and for more on Dr. Dow's work on coastal policy see the CISA webpage.
