Grants, Fellowships and Internships

Grant – Undergraduate Research, Coast Related

funds for the AY 2018-19 COAST Undergraduate Student Research Support Program, which provides $2,500 to each campus to support undergraduate research in marine, coastal and coastal watershed related topics. Last year this program funded 81 undergraduate students at 20 campuses throughout the CSU (AY 2017-18 Report (PDF, 181KB)). Funds can be used to support students' activities from September 1, 2018 – August 31, 2019. This opportunity is open to students from all colleges and disciplines as long as they are engaged in research projects aligned with COAST's scope and goals.

If you have a student who could benefit from this program or want to encourage new students to join your lab, we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity. Awards are generally small ($300-1,250 depending on how many awards a campus makes) but they can go a long way in facilitating undergraduate research, an established high impact practice shown to increase student success.

If interested, contact CI representatives Dr. Sean Anderson (ESRM) or Jared Barton (Economics).

Santa Barbara County Archaeological Society
No Cost
7:30-9pm held at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Farrand Hall
2559 Puesta del Sol, Santa Barbara, California 93105

The remarkable discovery of the Iceman in the Alps is well known and much discussed. Missing from these discussions, however, is the wealth of information we have about the cultures around the Alps when he was alive. This talk will place him in context by discussing archaeological evidence drawn from a number of remarkable village sites in Switzerland and southern Germany, providing unparalleled knowledge of lifeways in the Late Neolithic/Chalcolithic in this region of Europe.
