California Sea Grant College Educational Opportunities
The Delta Science Fellows Program (previously known as the CALFED Science Fellows Program) was established to bring together graduate students and postdoctoral researchers with Bay-Delta agency scientists and senior research mentors. Fellows work on collaborative data analysis and research projects applicable to the California Bay-Delta system. The goal of funding this research is to invest in knowledge that will fundamentally advance the understanding of the complex environments and systems within the Bay-Delta system to aid policy-makers and managers, and to train the next generation of research scientists for water issues in California. California Sea Grant administers the fellowship program.

The California Sea Grant trainee program provides stipends and tuition for graduate students hired by researchers to assist in their CASG-funded research.
John D. Isaacs Marine Undergraduate Research Assistant Program
California Sea Grant investigators may apply for one $2500 Undergraduate Research Assistant Grant each summer.
California Sea Grant provides financial support to this exciting marine science camp for youth ages 8-13. Each day, the mysteries of the oceans are revealed through hands-on activities above, beside, and below the water's surface. Teacher training programs in marine science are also offered.
In October 2007, then Sea Grant Extension Director Paul Olin traveled to Kaohsiung, Taiwan for the International Symposium to Promote Marine Education and presented a paper entitled, “Extension Education and Applied Research to Improve Marine Resource Management,” co-authored by Dr. Maxwell H. Mayeaux. The paper and PowerPoint presentation outlined the method of channeling research results from academia to the maritime industry. Both of these are made available as PDFs for downloading.
California Sea Grant Director Russ Moll also traveled to Taiwan for the October symposium. PDFs are provided here of "Marine Education in the Sea Grant Program," coauthored with Shauna Oh, along with the PowerPoint presentation.
