Oregon Sea Grant is now accepting applications through July 18 for the 2016-2017 Robert E. Malouf Marine Studies Scholarship.

The Malouf Scholarship is awarded to support graduate students who combine societally relevant research with education or public engagement. The student can be enrolled at any college or university in Oregon while working towards a degree in any field compatible with Oregon Sea Grant's mandate and areas of interest.

The scholarship is intended:

  • To honor the career and legacy of Dr. Robert E. Malouf, Oregon Sea Grant director by supporting the efforts of students in marine-related fields whose studies focus on applied research, education, outreach, and broader public engagement with Oregon coastal communities, and in recognition of his own principles, combine these interests.
  • To build the nation's future capacity in the marine sciences by providing significant contribution to students seeking advanced degrees in marine-related fields.
