For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
Are you looking for a summer research internship studying ocean, coastal or environmental science? Check out the Maryland Sea Grant Summer REU program. We bring upper-level undergraduate students to the Chesapeake Bay to conduct individual research projects with a scientist-mentor at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. We select undergrads in many disciplines, including engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, statistics, ecology and marine and environmental science.

In addition to conducting your own research project, you will learn about the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem, science communication, science ethics, careers in science, how to apply for fellowships and to graduate school, and more.

DETAILS:

12 week program, $6,000 stipend plus housing and travel support to and from host institution. Funded by the National Science Foundation and thus limited to US citizens or permanent residents. Application and guidance ww2.mdsg.umd.edu/reu/apply/index.php

We encourage students from colleges and universities where access to marine science and to research opportunities is limited and who are from groups traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and math. We believe bringing together students from many disciplines, backgrounds and parts of the country makes for a more interesting and educational summer experience for everyone.
