2022-23 call for applications
The Kathryn D. Sullivan Award in Earth & Marine Sciences is designed to encourage undergraduate student research for those pursuing degrees in disciplines related to Earth and marine sciences from a variety of perspectives: biological, physical, chemical, etc.
How the award may be used: Award funds should be used to gain real-world experience that builds scientific knowledge while shaping a broad understanding of environmental stewardship and policy issues. Among the ways the award recipients can use the funds are to participate in laboratory or field research or to attend conferences or engage in other professional development activities.
To apply you must have a UC Santa Cruz faculty sponsor for a project to be conducted between now and the end of summer quarter 2023, and that sponsor must complete an online recommendation for your project. If you have questions, please contact Science Awards.
All award recipients will be required to provide a handwritten or typed thank you note and complete a questionnaire for stewardship purposes and may be asked to participate in other recognition-events. If for any reason you are not able to participate in the recognition activities outlined above, we will work with you on an alternative.
Awards announced on Thursday, December 22, 2021.
Selection process: The Physical and Biological Sciences Undergraduate Award Committee, composed of faculty in the Sciences at UC Santa Cruz, will review the application materials, rank each proposal, and select the award recipient.
