Description:
Since 1990, The Shannon Point Marine Center has received funding from the National Science Foundation for the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program to support undergraduate students to conduct supervised research with a faculty advisor.

Each summer, eight students spent nine weeks at the Shannon Point Marine Center conducting original research with a faculty adviser. At the end of the session, students produced a written and an oral report based on the results of their work. Student research projects have addressed productivity and nutrient cycling in local watershed systems; ocean acidification; marine microbial ecology; marine chemical ecology; physiology of symbiosis; ecology and physiology of seaweeds; invertebrate larval development, physiology, ecology; and environmental toxicology.

Funding from the National Science Foundation provides participant financial support including:

-A $5400 stipend for the summer.

-A $675 food allowance.

-Housing in the SPMC dormitory.

-A travel allowance up to $650.

Continuing SPMC's long-standing tradition of working with diverse students, we strongly encourage applications from underserved, underrepresented, and under-resourced groups. Applications are welcome from students at any stage of their undergraduate degree program.
