Supported Students

 CMI student research funded by CMI

Each year, a part of the funding from the University of Alaska Coastal Marine Institute supports graduate students conducting important research under the supervision of CMI project principal investigators. This funding supports the training of tomorrow's scientists, while at the same time furthering research projects that meet CMI's priorities.

 The information below includes our current CMI-supported students and those who have graduated.
