Give to IGPMS

Graduate Student Support

Your unrestricted support provides essential funding for graduate students in the Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Marine Science (IGPMS). Philanthropic gifts help support fellowships for first year graduate students as a way to offset rising fees and tuition. These graduate fellowships are critical to our ability to offer the unique learning environment for which we are known, and are often the sole resource for funding outstanding graduate students during their first year. Generous support from alumni and friends enables the IGPMS to recruit top graduate students and maintain research and educational excellence.
