With generous support from Dr. Kathryn D. Sullivan and other donors, the Division of Physical and Biological Sciences at UC Santa Cruz is pleased to accept applications for the Kathryn D. Sullivan Research Impact Award in Earth and Marine Sciences. This program supports research projects in Earth and planetary sciences, ocean sciences, microbiology and environmental toxicology, ecology and evolutionary biology, chemistry, or related disciplines as they pertain to Earth and marine sciences. Research teams must comprise one undergraduate, one graduate student mentor, and one faculty mentor. The project must also address an important problem in the chosen discipline. The project must be well planned and integrated across the team members, and the proposal must include a clear explanation of what each member brings to the project.
