Oregon Sea Grant is now accepting applications for the 2017-18 Robert E. Malouf Marine Studies Scholarship.

Deadline: Monday, July 17, 2017, before 5:00 pm PST; submit intent to apply to eseagrant@oregonstate.edu by July 3.

The Malouf Scholarship provides one year of support to graduate students who combine societally relevant research with education or public engagement. The student can be enrolled in a master's/professional or Ph.D. program at any college or university in Oregon while working toward a degree in any field compatible with Oregon Sea Grant’s mandate and areas of interest.

This year the Oregon Sea Grant Scholars Program is focused on broadening participation and diversity by restructuring our recruitment and review processes. Our intent is to be more inclusive of applicants from various cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds with unique lived experiences, skills and interests, including applicants who may have had fewer opportunities in the marine or coastal field.
