Educational Activities

The Coastal Ocean Institute is committed to education. This is the means by which future scientific and policy leaders will develop, and so, by influencing directions at this level, we will influence future directions for the field. The Institute funds Joint Program graduate students and Postdoctoral Scholars who are working on important coastal problems, particularly if the work crosses the boundaries of traditional oceanographic disciplines.

Postdoctoral Scholars

With the aim of fostering interdisciplinary research addressing processes in the deep ocean, fellowships are available to support research associated with the COI themes.

Graduate Student Fellows

COI provides funding for two graduate student fellows.

Bay Environmental Quality Study Team (BEQST)
