Annually, the branch provides grants to 8-10 middle and high school girls to attend Girls in Ocean Science conferences at the Ocean Institute in Dana Point. These one-day programs provide an opportunity to conduct research with leading
scientists in labs on land and at sea. The girls are
exposed to a wide range of fields and careers
within ocean science, and learn about education and career pathways they might take.
