The UC Natural Reserve System provides many opportunities for student support.
- The UC Natural Reserve System sponsors the Mildred E. Mathias Graduate Student Research Program.
- Valentine Eastern Sierra Reserve also sponsors a graduate student grant program to support research at either SNARL or Valentine Camp.
- Opportunities for undergraduate internships are available at some of the UCSB reserves, and the UCSB NRS sponsors the Henry W. Offen Undergraduate Internship (access the application here), an annual award that provides the opportunity for a student to work on management activities at a UCSB reserve.
- Santa Cruz Island Reserve has a grant program to offset students’ costs for travel by boat to the island.
