ASLO has a number of activities and resources geared towards undergraduate and graduate students in the aquatic sciences. These activities include everything from advice on presentations and applying to graduate school, to awarding travel grants to meetings and student workshops. Student resources and activities are handled by a sub-committee of the ASLO Education and Human Resources Super Committee and currently has the following members:
Edna Fernandez-Figueroa (co-Chair)
Manda Kambikambi (co-Chair)
Hayley N. Schiebel
ASLO recognizes that its student members are the future of the society and we want you to know that you have a home here! Students comprise approximately 1/3 of ASLO membership and we hail from all over the world.
