Stu Levenbach receives John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship
California Sea Grant announced that Stu Levenbach, an SBC graduate student, is one of two new Knauss Fellows from California and will join 42 other winners in Washington, D.C. for a yearlong mentoring program in federalmarine policy. Stu has been placed with republican staff on the Senate's Commerce Committee, which includes Olympia Snowe (Maine) and Ted Stevens (Alaska). "I have always been interested in policy," Levenbach said. "But I wanted to earn my stripes as a scientist before I ventured into policy. The fellowship allowed me to enter into the world of policy from a science background. ... I think there will be a lot of fisheries and aquaculture issues, as well as climate issues." More information on Sea Grant and the John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowships can be found at http://www.csgc.ucsd.edu (under "Education").
