Connecting to aspiring environmental scientists during their undergraduate years is critical to growing their interests into a full-fledged environmental research career.
Each summer, the Maryland Sea Grant Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program offers fourteen students the opportunity to conduct marine research on the Chesapeake Bay — the program is especially designed for students majoring in such fields as biology, chemistry, ecology, environmental science, engineering, physics, marine science and mathematics.
During this 12-week REU program each student works with a mentor on an individual research project at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory and the Horn Point Laboratory.
The Maryland Sea Grant Program, with support from the National Science Foundation provides each fellow with a stipend of $4,200, dormitory costs and round-trip travel expenses.
Please learn more about this program from the Maryland Sea Grant website.
