Help graduate students prepare to enter the workforce!

Dwindling research budgets provide challenges for graduate students to obtain funding to present their work at scientific conferences, collaborate with colleagues at other institutions and to investigate career opportunities. The Oceanography Society plans to bridge this gap by providing funds to support selected graduate students through the TOS "Career Opportunity/Student Travel and Research Support" (TOS COSTARS) Fund.

The TOS COSTARS Fund will support graduate students to:

  • attend biennial Ocean Sciences Meetings,
  • travel to relevant national and regional professional development workshops and conferences,
  • conduct research at specialized off campus facilities and
  • explore career opportunities in all sectors of society (e.g. industry, government, NGOs, formal and information education and academia)
There are now a wide range of important career options for students graduating with advanced degrees; please help TOS support them in making connections to further their career opportunities.
