UH-Clear Lake student selected to Dean Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship
Henry Hodde, a UH-Clear Lake graduate student and Environmental Management research assistant, was one of two candidates selected by the Texas Sea Grant College Program to the Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship.
Hodde will travel to Washington, D.C. this fall to meet with his host representative, and next year he will spend one year in the capital learning about marine policy issues.
The Knauss Fellowship was established in 1979 to educate and involve students interested in ocean, coastal and Great Lakes conservation and the politics surrounding it.
Hodde has trained in national and regional environmental research projects, where he sampled and collected data for laboratory work. He was also student government president from 2011-2012.
“I hope that my participation in the Knauss Fellowship will expand my opportunities and knowledge of many possible ways I can progress in this field,” he said. “Sea Grant professionals are ‘charged with providing balanced and reliable science-based information and delivering solutions coastal residents can use.’ I was raised on the coast, and feel passionate towards all coastal activities. Therefore, one goal I have is to always incorporate this passion into my work.”
