External Awards

A variety of external  awards honoring Joint Program Students.

WHOI Ocean Ventures Fund

The intent of the WHOI Ocean Ventures Funds is to promote hard-to-fund, cutting-edge research by encouraging scientists to take chances in following their curiosity.

Grassle Fellowship Fund

The intent of the Grassle Fellowship Fund (GFF) is to support post-generals graduate student research related to ocean biodiversity or physical-biological interactions.  The ocean biodiversity theme relates to five questions:  What lives in the ocean?  Where do they live and why?  How many are there?  Are there long-term trends in biodiversity of marine ecosystems?  If so, what factors affect observed/predicted changes? The physical-biological interactions theme relates to the effects of physical processes at all spatial scales on the ecology of marine organisms or ecosystems.
