One of NOSB’s sponsors, the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation, is sponsoring graduate fellowships for doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers whose research focuses on activities that contribute to a better understanding of the health and resilience of coral reefs in countries surveyed throughout the Global Reef Expedition (2011-2016). The Living Oceans Foundation Fellowship will provide up to a $35,000 annual gift to cover legitimate educational and research expenses such as tuition and research field-work expenses. The fellowship recipient will be known as the “Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation Research Fellow.” Fellows may receive up to four continuous years of financial support based upon annual competitive reapplication.
Candidates must have demonstrated oral and written communication skills, be fluent in English and have the knowledge and expertise needed to develop a thesis or dissertation topic related to the mission of the Foundation and its role in marine conservation.
