For Spring 2020, Hacking 4 Oceans is looking for an inaugural cohort of students who are excited to gain first-hand experience working in an interdisciplinary environment to address pressing ocean and coastal issues.

Because students will be interacting directly with high-level individuals from governmental and non-governmental organizations, Hacking 4 Oceans expects a baseline of excellence and commitment from its students.

As such, interested students must apply in advance. You can apply as an individual (we will help match you with a team) or as a team.

Admission to the course is on a rolling basis.

We aim to make final decisions before spring break starts. If you need additional time, please contact

Teams work together on a specific problem. Teams should be diverse and each member will learn a tremendous amount about the problem field.

Applications are now closed for the 2020 cohort

When the 2021 cohort applications open, please access the application using your UCSC email account.
