Scholarships and Grants

Every year, CSULB students compete for and win national scholarships and grants. In addition, generous donations by community members, alumni, and emeritus faculty allow us to offer students studying marine biology at CSULB a variety of internal scholarships and grants. Only CSULB students are eligible for these awards! Applications for all of these awards are due early each spring, and awards are made at the end of the spring semester. Enrolled CSULB students can get more information about all of these at the "Marine Biology at the Beach" Beachboard page. If you are interested in supporting the education and research of marine biologists at CSULB, please support our program!
