FUNDING AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT @ HATFIELD


Every year, nearly $100K is awarded to bright, engaging, and hopeful undergraduate and graduate students to participate in research experiences, teach experiential courses and reach out to the public about the relevance of their science. Hatfield’s donors continue to recognize and support students’ needs for research and lab experience that directly relate to their career interests in marine science. These research awards provide students with real-world training opportunities in writing research proposals and reports, managing a research budget, and communicating their research findings at the Annual Markham Symposium. Here is a schedule from the 2021 Virtual Markham Symposium.

We thank our many donors for recognizing and invigorating our student researchers at Hatfield. For further information on scholarships, fellowships and awards contact Melissa Rieth.
