Scripps Community Outreach Program for Education (SCOPE)

Scripps Oceanography, overlooking Scripps Pier

SCOPE is a volunteer organization based at Scripps Institution of Oceanography composed of graduate students and researchers. We specialize in connecting the general public directly with the incredible science conducted here at Scripps!

If you are a school group, Scout troop, or otherwise interested in learning more about SCOPE outreach, please contact us at and we can try to organize a visit.

As of Fall 2016, SCOPE is excited to announce that we have some funding available to help enable field trips from low-income schools. If you are a teacher at a Title 1 middle or high school and would like to bring your students to Scripps, you can learn more and fill out our field trip scholarship application here. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

Current SCOPE Coordinators:

  • Heather Page
  • Maitreyi Nagarkar
  • Shelby Jones
