LYNCHPIN: the Ocean Project covers so many aspects of marine work and the arts-science dialogue, it now has its own domain.
Lynchpin scholarships, available in partnership with private donors, support ocean research in particular in relation to aspects of climate change and link ocean science with arts collaborations to tell important ocean stories.

The LYNCHPIN project was developed to support research into the significance of the oceans to life on the planet, with a strong emphasis on bringing this story to the wider community in new ways. Lynchpin is committed to encouraging arts/ocean science collaborations and interdisciplinary dialogue at a wider level to promote critical, and not generally understood, issues of ocean science.
The ocean-specific LYNCHPIN SCHOLARSHIP is open to a postgraduate student working in marine science with a focus on particular areas:
- significance of the Southern Oceans to planetary systems;
- the crucial role of marine plant plankton in supporting planetary metabolism;
- climate change research, particularly ocean acidification;
- the role of the physics and chemistry of oceans on their ecology;
- the crucial importance of seaweeds in supporting coastal reef systems.
