REEF is excited to announce the new Marine Conservation Fellow Program, and we are currently seeking qualified individuals to apply for three open positions, each with a different focus. Current fellowship openings include: Education and Events, Communications and Outreach, and Conservation Science. The fellowship is designed to equip recent college graduates and other early career individuals with the tools, experiences, support, and community they need to become leaders in marine conservation. Full details and position descriptions can be found at The target audience for the Marine Conservation Fellow Program is college-aged/early-career individuals. The program is not limited to US citizens, but international applicants need to secure all necessary visas and permits.

The fellowship is a full-time (40-hour/week) position, and we are asking that Fellows commit to a 9-12-month position. Fellows will be based at the REEF Campus in Key Largo, Florida (US). Program hours are typically Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm. Fellows often have responsibilities for participating in evening and weekend events. Stipend and Housing: REEF Fellows receive a $1,000/month stipend and housing in a furnished home in Key Largo, FL, shared with other Fellows and Marine Conservation Interns. Fellows should have their own transportation.

Review of applications will begin on July 5, 2022, and then review will be on a rolling basis after that. Desired start date for incoming Fellows is August 22, but the actual start date remains flexible for the right candidate. Fellow positions will remain open until filled. We do not anticipate filling all three positions at the same time. Interested candidates may apply online at The application includes an online form, an attachment with cover letter, CV/resume, and answers to several questions, and one letter of reference.
