Each student in the program is paired with a Bigelow scientist based on mutual research interests. During the ten weeks, students work with their mentors to identify a research question, develop a proposal, conduct their research, and prepare an abstract and poster. At the end of the program, students present their poster and give a talk at a student symposium.
Research areas vary year to year, but include the marine microbial food web, ocean biogeochemistry, optical oceanography, remote sensing, sensory biology, climate change and fisheries oceanography.
Successful applicants receive a stipend, housing, food allowance, and funds for travel to and from Bigelow Laboratory.
Bigelow Laboratory is a center for global ocean research; our focus ranges from microbial oceanography to large-scale processes that drive interactions between ocean ecosystems and the global environment. Areas of research include the marine microbial food web, ocean biogeochemistry, optical oceanography, remote sensing, sensory biology, climate change and fisheries oceanography. These projects have taken Bigelow scientists to every ocean and the polar seas.
