Aquarium of the Pacific

On November 19, 2022 the Aquarium will host the second annual African American Scholar Symposium to strengthen the scholars’ connection to the Aquarium and each other. The program includes 5 minute “Lightning Talks” from members of the 2022 scholars, and a panel of three guest speakers representing various career paths.

The Aquarium’s African American Scholar Program supports exceptional students pursuing fields of study related to the aquarium. Through the award and engagement experience, the Aquarium hopes to lower barriers by providing both financial support for academic endeavors, and community support through networking opportunities. This program seeks to provide continued involvement in fields related to the Aquarium for deserving African American students to bring diverse minds to solving the issues facing our planet and its inhabitants.

In February 2022, the second cohort of African American Scholars were announced.

Applications are now available for the third year of the program. Eligible students are encouraged to apply before the November 26, 2022, deadline.

This program is made possible by donor support. Thanks to an anonymous matching gift of $10,000, your gift goes even further towards supporting the next group of deserving scholars! To make a donation visit our site.
