LUMCON provides quality education at the university, K-12, and public levels, particularly for under-represented students in marine sciences. By doing so, we increase societal awareness of the environmental, economic, and cultural values of Louisiana’s coastal and marine environments.
We work hard to ensure our education programs are as affordable as possible. Indeed, our course costs are among the lowest in the nation. However, student tuition is still a barrier for low-income students. Our Executive Director, Craig McClain, was one of these students. Had it not been for a scholarship provided by a generous donor, he wouldn’t have been able to participate in the LUMCON summer courses that launched his career.
Help us serve more students from a diversity of backgrounds. You can break barriers by supporting a student with a donation to our Scholarship Fund. Donate by April 15th to ensure a student can engage with marine science in the Summer of 2018.
