Hopkins Marine Station's diverse laboratories and unique location provides an amazing platform to teach undergraduate and graduate students one-on-one via a mix of courses, seminars, and research opportunities which emphasize faculty-student interactions. Stanford provides the basic funds for these efforts, but gifts from people like you give us the flexibility to go beyond the basics.

Your gift matters

The generosity of donors has helped to provide funds for student summer research stipends and project costs, augmenting funding from faculty grants. These funds allow us to say 'Yes!' when undergraduates come to Hopkins for course work during the academic year, fall in love with the place, and then ask if they can stick around to do summer research. Your gift will allow them to choose innovative honors-thesis research projects, and will set the stage for continued interactions as these ideas blossom throughout their Stanford careers.
