I am pleased to announce that Ocean Connect’s first video tutorial series – Finding a Great Opportunity – is now up in the Resources section of the Ocean Connect website. The Opportunities Database contains information on ocean-related academic programs, awards, contests, enrichment programs, externships, internships, fellowships, grants, research projects, scholarships, summer programs, and training programs available to students from middle school through graduate school.

Finding a Great Opportunity explains how to use the Opportunities Database to your best advantage.

Specifically, the tutorial covers the following areas:

  1. The types of programs contained in the Opportunities Database;
  2. The availability of these programs;
  3. How to access the Opportunities Database; and
  4. Searching the Opportunities Database

Other tutorials coming soon include Navigating the Application Process and Creating Your Own opportunity.
