The Sustainable Ocean Alliance and Environmental Defense Fund offer the Leadership for Climate-Resilient Fisheries (LCRF) fellowship.

This program supports early career change-makers and fishing community members who are working to advance fisheries and their communities’ ecological and socioeconomic resilience to climate change.

Fellows receive grant funding and capacity-building experiences in the form of mentorship and training facilitated by Sustainable Ocean Alliance and the Environmental Defense Fund's Climate-Resilient Fisheries and Oceans teams.

The 2023 fellowship is for projects that impact a US-based fishery. The fellow term begins October 16, 2023 and ends July 26, 2024, and includes an in-person capacity-building seminar in Washington D.C. over two days in February 2024. All costs related to travel and lodging in D.C. will be covered. In addition to this trip, fellows are expected to attend at least three workshops led by EDF.
