About Our Auction

For the last several decades, MLML has hosted a two-day open house event to invite members of the public to visit the labs while interacting with faculty and students and learning about the laboratories’ many research projects. This annual MLML Open House is free to attend for all members of the public, however, it is also the main fundraising source for our student body-funded scholarships.

Funds raised through donations that occur through the crowdfunding website are used to provide the next year's financial aid and scholarships for our students. These funds will also be used to help cover other research-related expenses for students including maintenance/acquisition of marine research equipment used for educational programming and other costs associated with student research expenses. These funds will directly benefit the members of the MLML community by raising awareness of marine science while providing funding to graduate students. All current graduate students are eligible to apply for the scholarships raised through this event.

We are excited to welcome the public back to Moss Landing Marine Laboratories for our first in-person Open House since 2019! MLML's 2023 Open House will take place on April 22 from 9am - 5pm - we are so excited to see you all.
