The Science Communication Fellowship is a professional development program which includes: participation in a spring science communication training workshop at the University of Rhode Island's Graduate School of Oceanography; experience sailing 3-4 weeks as part of the exploration team on board an oceanographic expedition; a year-long commitment to collaborate with STEM professionals, research scientists, and the educator Fellows within the cohort; development of a STEM-lesson or outreach material deliverable for your education audience; and the agreement to serve as a role model for learners based on your Nautilus experience.

The Ocean Exploration Trust's Science Communication Fellowship aims to provide educators with training and immersive at-sea experiences in science communication and ocean exploration. Sailing with Ocean Exploration Trust offers participants the opportunity to deepen their understanding of how science, technology, engineering, and mathematics apply to real-world situations and to engage their classrooms, organizations, and local communities in ocean exploration.

Applications for the Science Communication Fellowship open in late-summer for opportunities the following expedition year. Ocean Exploration Trust encourages a diverse pool of applicants including from traditionally underrepresented populations.
