Fellowship allows Southington native to explore marine policy in D.C.

ORONO, MAINE—The National Sea Grant College Program has awarded Dean John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowships to three Maine graduates, including Southington resident Andrew Strosahl. The group will join 49 fellow graduates from around the country who will work on marine policy in Washington, D.C.

The fellowships provide the opportunity for recent graduates to apply their scientific background to marine and coastal policymaking at the national level.

Strosahl is a graduate of Maine Maritime Academy and received his JD at the University of Maine School of Law, where he developed legal briefs for the Law School and the Conservation Law Foundation. Before completing his law degree, he worked in the merchant marine as a civilian with the U.S. Navy. He received several awards for his service with the Navy, as well as a Commandant’s Citation at Maine Maritime Academy. Strosahl will serve in the office of U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii during his Knauss Fellowship.
