ASLO (Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography) Multicultural Program


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students
Graduate Students (Masters)

Description:
Hampton University, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and the National Science Foundation offer special opportunities for under-represented minority students (undergraduate and graduate) interested in aquatic sciences (oceanography, limnology, stream ecology, marine biology, fisheries, etc.). The program has historically focused on students from underrepresented groups and this year will also include undergraduate students who are nominated by the director of an REU Ocean Sciences site. The ASLO Multicultural Program provides students full support (travel, housing, food, and registration) to participate in the annual meetings of ASLO.

Students present their own research in a student symposium or the regular ASLO sessions. They gain valuable learning experiences and exposures to the most recent developments in the aquatic sciences. Participants make important professional contacts that will help them achieve academic and career objectives. Students also receive a free membership in ASLO, including a subscription to the journal Limnology and Oceanography.

Special activities include: A pre-conference workshop, exciting field trips, working with "meeting mentors" to help students navigate the meetings, a keynote address from a leading aquatic scientist and an opportunity to volunteer service to the community on Saturday after the meetings.

Since 1990, 830 students have participated in ASLOMP.
