Supporting a Student Researcher

Support for top graduate students is crucial to facilitate the research agenda of the AlloSphere. Typically it is the team of graduate students who take the scientific and technical data and work creatively with the involved faculty member or corporate representative to prepare the data for display in 3D. Extramural grant funding is often available to assist engineering and science students; financial support is typically less available for artists, musicians, and students enrolled in multidisciplinary programs like Media Arts and Technology. Please consider a contribution directed to graduate student support.

For more information on giving opportunities directly impacting a students academic life, please contact Dr. Kuchera-Morin, the director of the AlloSphere Research Facility. Please contact our team at (805) 893-3010 or directly to
