A core component of Ocean Science Trust’s (OST) founding legislation (CORSA, 2000) is to support graduate level education and encourage graduate education programs in management-oriented ocean resource science in public and private universities and colleges in California. One way in which we advance this is by serving as a host for graduate-level interns. OST is dedicated to providing immersive on-the-job non-profit career training in marine science and policy, mentorship, and experience working across a range of ocean and coastal issues in support of state goals and priorities for our ocean and coast.
Your support helps bring this work to life. As an independent boundary organization, we’re proud to receive funding from a diverse array of sources, including state and federal grants and contracts, foundations, private industry, and individual donors.
Our support comes from state and federal grants, foundations, private industry, and individual donors. Funders represent the breadth of our program areas and our commitment to independent science for our ocean’s future.
