MISS provides a community and funding opportunities for women of color who wish to enter the field of shark sciences. We aim to show that there are many women of color succeeding in and interested in this field.
We fundraise and apply for grants to create paid opportunities to attempt to knock do the financial barrier into shark science. We encourage other organizations in our field to do the same.
MISS is a registered US nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation under 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
