Summer Student Fellowship ProgramView this Opportunity's Website Academic Level:
A research project is at the heart of the Summer Student and Minority Fellowship programs. All fellows are expected to work on a project selected in collaboration with their sponsor(s) that will provide meaningful results in one summer’s work. Research topics span a broad spectrum of topics throughout WHOI’s science departments, and the Woods Hole Field Station of the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
The summer season kicks off each year with a thoughtful and intriguing presentation from a member of our scientific or technical staff at the Annual Summer Student Banquet. Fellows have many occasions to interact with current MIT/WHOI Joint Program graduate students, from the Q&A session designed specifically for that purpose to the Ethics in Science Workshop.
In addition, fellowship recipients have the opportunity to attend and participate in a busy schedule of talks, seminars and a hands-on, one-day, at-sea practicum cruise onboard the R/V Tioga focusing on data collection and sampling methods with advanced oceanographic technology and instruments. The cruise is especially designed for fellows and not only provides practical training but also brings the group together socially through a shared field experience.Program Materials:This Program can be Described by:
