Graduate students Theresa Davenport and Gabrielle Saluta of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Gloucester Point, have been selected as finalists for the prestigious John A. Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship for 2013.

The pair’s selection continues a tradition of VIMS students earning these respected fellowships through the National Sea Grant Federal Fellows Program, a release said. Since its inception in 1979, 34 VIMS students and recent alumni have made the trip to Washington, D.C., for the one-year program, which places highly qualified graduate students from across the nation with hosts in legislative or executive offices. The experience provides a hands-on education in the policies and processes of the federal government.
