Scripps Institution of Oceanography is one of the oldest and most important centers for ocean, earth and atmospheric science research, education and public service in the world. Support provides vital flexibility to best serve our students, faculty and research. Here are a few areas that need our support:
- Plastics in the Ocean: A Global Initiative -These large masses and microscopic particles are infiltrating food webs, releasing dangerous amounts of methane, and putting our greatest natural resource at risk. Fast on the heels of the first-ever convening of global ocean plastics experts at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, we propose a new round of activity, this time leveraging UC San Diego’s leadership in behavioral economics to explore and activate options for influencing human behavior and unlocking solutions to this pressing problem.
Scripps Oceanography Diversity Fellowships - Created to secure funding for historically underrepresented students achieve admission into Scripps graduate programs. With your help, we will ensure that social, educational, or economic barriers do not prevent some of the brightest minds in the world from studying at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
