FOR STUDENTS WITH DREAMS OF BECOMING BIOLOGISTS, the chance to work and study in an immersive and pristine field environment can be life-changing, and there are few places more inspiring than Southeast Alaska.
Alaska Whale Foundation was created to assist individuals who needed financial and logistical support to achieve their marine-related research goals. Today, AWF remains committed to providing opportunities for the next generation of biologists. AWF provides mentorship and financial assistance to graduate students, and invites undergraduate students to participate in field work. In 2014, the organization expanded its commitment to education by developing the Center for Coastal Conservation, a facility that provides ongoing support for graduate students and exciting new opportunities for volunteers. AWF also plans to develop accredited university field courses that will be offered at the CREC. CLICK HERE to learn how you can get involved.
