Ocean and Marine Science
May 22 - June 30, 2001
The program objective is to promote the professional development of
minority undergraduate students through their participation in ocean and
marine science research. The program will consist of a group of ten
undergraduates. Applications are accepted from throughout the country.
Undergraduate students selected must be citizens or permanent residents
of the United States. Each student will be assigned to a specific
research team, where he/she will work closely with the faculty. In
addition, seminars, lunch meetings, and social functions will be
organized to facilitate undergraduate interaction. The project will be
conducted for six weeks during summer 2001, with on-line mentoring and
follow-up during academic year 2001-02. Each student will be granted a
stipend of 300 dollars per week, housing and in some cases assistance
with travel. Students who are in those groups traditionally
under-represented in science are particularly urged to apply.
Mathematics, computer science, geoscience, engineering, and physics
majors who will have completed 30 hours of coursework by the beginning
of the program are eligible to apply. GPA of 3.2 or above is required.
To apply send a current transcript, resume, a one page personal statement, and one letter of recommendation to:
