Maryland Sea Grant's Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Estuarine Science

- 12 week program: May 19 to August 11, 2013.
- $6,000 stipend plus housing and travel support to and from host institution
- Applications due: March 1, 2013
- Application and guidance

We select undergraduates in diverse disciplines, including engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, ecology and marine and environmental science. Preference is given to rising seniors.

We are particularly interested in supporting talented students from institutions where access to marine science and to research projects is limited and who are from underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

Since 1989, NSF has supported bringing students to conduct individual research projects with a scientist-mentor at either Chesapeake Biological Lab or Horn Point Lab of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
