Sea Grant Fellows

     Charlotte de Fontaubert and Rebecca Metzner, Delaware '90M, both
doctoral candidates in the College of Marine Studies, have been
selected for the 1995 National Sea Grant Federal Fellows Program. The
University of Delaware is one of only seven Sea Grant programs to be
represented by more than one fellow.
     Sponsored by the National Sea Grant College Program in the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and endorsed by the
U.S. Congress, the competitive program matches highly qualified
graduate students with host agencies in the legislative and executive
branches of the federal government for a year. Each of the nation's 29
Sea Grant programs may nominate four students.
     De Fontaubert is working for the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee. Her first assignment is assisting with preparations for the
ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea
and joining the U.S. delegation to the United Nations Conference on
Straddling and High Migratory Fish Stocks.
     A native of France, De Fontaubert has a master's degree in law
from the Universite Paris Assas, a master's degree in management and
international business law from the Universite Paris Dauphine and a
master's degree in sea-use law, economics and policy from the London
School of Economics and Political Science.
     With a bachelor's degree in biology from Princeton University and
a master's degree in economics from Delaware, Metzner, who is from
Wilmington, is working for the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science
and Transportation. She is assisting with preparations for the
reauthorization of the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management
Act, which involves a series of hearings around the country, and the
Coast Guard Act.
