For nearly a decade the Friends of Moss Landing Marine Laboratories (MLML) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have generously awarded a $5,000 summer internship at MBARI to an MLML student in the name of Drew Gashler, a former MLML student and MBARI employee. Unfortunately, due to lack of funds, it may be impossible to offer this incredible opportunity to one of our students this year.

In the past, student interns have worked on various projects with Dr Jim Bellingham in the Long-Range Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (LRAUV) lab at MBARI; it is a tremendous opportunity for students to apply the skills they have acquired in their program, gain exposure to innovative research technologies and to benefit from the professional expertise and wisdom of the MBARI staff. For many people, this experience has not only helped to shape their thesis, but their futures as marine researchers.

On behalf of all the students at MLML, please consider contributing to the Drew Gashler scholarship fund. Your donation would not only help a current MLML student, but will celebrate the life and work of a devoted steward of the sea, Drew Gashler.
