We serve as an integrated portal for STEM students to find all the STEM-focused services, programs, and resources at UCSC.
The Elmer A. Fridley Scholarship in the Physical Sciences is awarded annually to an outstanding undergraduate or graduate student pursuing a degree in the physical sciences. The scholarship fund was established in 1989 upon receipt of a bequest from the estate of William Fridley, a long-time resident of Santa Cruz County.
The fellowship provides training opportunities to our astronomy graduate community through a variety of educational activities, mentorships with outstanding leaders, and large project leadership experiences.
We are looking for motivated AAUS certified scientific divers to help us conduct kelp forest community surveys around the Monterey peninsula. Contact Emily Saarman (email@example.com) for details.
Assist in collecting juvenile and adult rockfish, taking fin clips for genetic analysis, and maintaining collection devices for juvenile fishes. Contact Emily Saarman (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
Become a part of our team of school programs instructors who teach engaging, hands-on, marine-science activities to visiting school groups in our seawater and teaching labs.
This program supports a summer research project by an undergraduate mentored by a graduate student conducting a summer research project in Earth and planetary sciences, ecology and evolutionary biology, chemistry, or related disciplines.
We’re interested in Ph.D. or M.S. students in ocean sciences with strong quantitative skills. If you’re an undergraduate interested in research experience, there may be summer internship opportunities.
We are interested in prospective graduate students who want to pursue research on the process of coevolution, and the ways in which evolving interactions organize biodiversity over broad geographic areas.
Students will conduct observational, experimental and/or modeling research to address questions that leverage the unique opportunities provided by the University of California Natural Reserve System.
We are looking for graduate students interested in using cutting-edge science, deep ecological expertise, and science communication to inform policy solutions to our most pressing environmental problems.
We are looking for graduate students who are passionate about protecting biodiversity and ecosystem function with the entrepreneurial drive, intellectual ability, and social skills required to make an impact on conservation.
A collaboration between UC Santa Cruz CSPP and seven Monterey Bay area academic campuses, we provide professional development opportunities to prepare future ocean leaders for interdisciplinary, real world problem-solving.
Named for former director Albert Whitford, is awarded to the UC Santa Cruz Astronomy & Astrophysics graduate student who attains highest achievement in research, coursework, teaching, and the preliminary exam.
This Physical & Biological Science Summer Research Symposium offers STEM students the opportunity to discuss their research with faculty, peers, and the public.
Based in the UC Santa Cruz Natural Reserve System, this research course focuses on field methods, ecology, and conservation equivalent to the content of four on-campus courses.
Our Diving Safety Program assists, trains and maintains students, faculty, and staff in compliance with scientific diving regulations, as well as OSHA and AAUS requirements.
FERP internships support the development and maintenance of long-term ecological monitoring of the forest, including growth, recruitment, and mortality of trees, spatial and temporal patterns in understory vegetation, and more.
The symposium offers graduate students from every division the opportunity to discuss their research with colleagues on campus and with the public.
Each fall, the Seymour Marine Discovery Center and the Institute of Marine Sciences hold an open competition for UCSC students to encourage research and education projects in the marine sciences.
This program is geared for students in all STEM disciplines. Students can participate in the following: community events, study groups & tutoring, graduate school application support, and journal club.
Funded through the National Institutes of Health, IMSD provides students with the opportunity to receive experience in the academic and experimental aspects of biological research.
