Maryland Sea Grant’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Estuarine Science

Undergraduate students are invited to apply for Maryland Sea Grant’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Estuarine Science. http://www.mdsg.umd.edu/REU

Since 1989, NSF has supported bringing students to conduct individual research projects with a scientist-mentor at either Chesapeake Biological Lab or Horn Point Lab of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. This is a great opportunity to conduct research with a mentor and spend a summer by the Chesapeake Bay.

DETAILS:

– 12-week program: May 20 to August 12, 2018
– $6,000 stipend plus housing and travel support to and from host institution

– Application and guidance http://ww2.mdsg.umd.edu/reu/apply/index.php

We select undergraduates in diverse disciplines, including engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, ecology and marine and environmental science.

We are particularly interested in supporting talented students from institutions where access to marine science and to research projects is limited and who are from underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

If you have any questions please feel free to email us at reu@mdsg.umd.edu.
