Are you looking for a summer research internship studying ocean, coastal or environmental science? I invite you to check out the Maryland Sea Grant Summer REU program. We bring upper-level undergraduate students to the Chesapeake Bay to conduct individual research projects with a scientist-mentor at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. We select undergrads in many disciplines, including engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, ecology, and marine and environmental science.
Each REU fellow will receive:
Free housing at your research lab
Round-trip travel expenses
In particular, we encourage students from colleges and universities where access to marine science and to research opportunities is limited and who are from groups traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and math. We believe bringing together students from many disciplines, backgrounds, and parts of the country makes for a more interesting and educational summer experience.
We are accepting applications for the 2024 class now through February 13. The REU program returned to an in-person experience in 2022 and we anticipate the same in 2024. Please visit our website to find out more (www.mdsg.umd.edu/reu
