Scholarship Info &  Donations:

The Columbia Alumni Association of Boston Scholarship Fund makes a financial aid scholarship award annually to an undergraduate student from New England. The Club established the Fund in 1983 to benefit undergraduate students from the greater New England region attending Columbia College or the School of Engineering, who demonstrate excellence and leadership in academics, extracurricular activities and character. We ask that you please give generously to this cause. You can make a donation directly to the Scholarship Fund, by bringing to the event a separate donation check payable to “Columbia University” (Please include your address and indicate “CAA Boston Scholarship” on the check’s memo line, and the University will issue a gift receipt ).

About the Speaker:

Jerry McManus grew up in New York City and received a B.A, M.A. and Ph.D. (1997) in Geology from Columbia University. As a paleo-oceanographer, his research uses deep-sea sediments to reconstruct past changes in the Earth’s climate and the large-scale ocean circulation, with a special focus on the role that the ocean plays in abrupt climate change. He has spent nearly a year of his life at sea. After ten years at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, he returned to Columbia in 2008, and is now a Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences based at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
