Fellowships can provide fantastic career development and a chance to take student learning outside the classroom.
The Monterey Institute has received a $1.8 million challenge gift that aims to support and inspire the continued growth of the Institute’s Center for the Blue Economy by generating at least $3 million for the Center over the next three years.
Ten Monterey Institute students describe the Center for the Blue Economy Summer Fellowships – fully funded summer positions with top marine organizations around the world -- as “amazing” and “insanely relevant” to their career goals.
Monterey Institute students are celebrating yet another banner year for earning prestigious fellowships such as the Fulbright, Boren and the Presidential Management Fellowship, attributable to an excellent group of candidates with strong faculty and staff support.
