There is an undergraduate summer research opportunity at the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment at the University of Delaware. Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Division of Ocean Sciences, this REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program supports ten undergraduate students to conduct research in marine science. They especially encourage applications from members of minority groups underrepresented in science.
The program will run for 10 weeks (June 7 - August 13). Please visit their website to find out more about the program. Student support includes a $3,300 stipend (which could increase to $4500 pending approval of our most recent proposal to NSF), campus housing, tuition for the one-credit course, and travel assistance. The application form and instructions are available on their website as well.
Interns will work with faculty and research staff in a graduate student atmosphere on a research topic in chemical, physical, or biological oceanography, marine biology, or marine geology.
This internship program will take place at the University of Delaware's Hugh R. Sharp Campus in the resort community of Lewes, located on the shores of the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean near Cape Henlopen State Park.
