Student Research and Education Awards

Congratulations 2016-17 Student Research and Education Award Winners!

The 2016-17 Student Research and Education Awards program and celebration generously sponsored by Bob and Carol Simpkins.

Every year, Friends of Seymour Marine Discover Center host an open competition for UCSC students to encourage research and education projects in the marine sciences. For student research, all geographic areas of study will be considered. For marine science education, the projects must be affiliated with the public education program at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center. Awards will be made to both undergraduate students and graduate students (both masters and doctoral). Awards up to $1,000 for undergraduate research and $2,000 for graduate research.


Volunteer and Intern Opportunities

If you are a college student interested in marine science, science education, or museum-related careers, there’s an opportunity for you at the Seymour Marine Discovery Center. Hands-on experience comes in many different areas––K-12 teaching, informal science education, animal husbandry, museum administration, or visitor services. Consider becoming an ongoing volunteer or learn about specific intern opportunities. It’s the best way to learn about a career path you’re considering or discover the job you will love for a lifetime.
