The ASLO LOREX program fosters international research collaborations through professional development training open to all ASLO student members. It provides competitive paid research exchanges opportunities for graduate students. Professional development training occurs through webinars, web resources, and conference workshops. The research exchanges allow US-based graduate students to travel to one of seven international host institutions to conduct collaborative research in aquatic science. LOREX participants regularly blog about their experiences and lessons learned.

Announcing the Limnology and Oceanography Research Exchange program
