Ways to Support Oceans at MIT

Support Oceans at MIT

MIT seeks partners in advancing Oceans at MIT and our collaboration with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Gifts of all sizes are welcome and appreciated and will be gratefully acknowledged.

Although our portfolio of active research is robustly funded by all the traditional sponsors, additional support is both vital and transformative. Here are a few examples:

  • Graduate student and post-doctoral fellowships are the essential fuel of both research and education.
  • Ignition grants spark innovative research and development of new sensing technologies and oceanographic field programs in advance of traditional funding.
  • Visiting faculty programs foster collaboration that can lead to significant advances.
  • Outreach efforts like lectures, symposia, and briefings inform the public and policymakers alike.
