The ASLO Multicultural Program is going to Spain in 2023!

ASLOMP students at a recent meeting in Puerto Rico

Hampton University, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and the National Science Foundation offer special opportunities for diverse students (undergraduate and graduate) interested in aquatic sciences (oceanography, limnology, stream ecology, marine biology, fisheries, etc.). The program includes students from underrepresented groups and other undergraduate students who are nominated by the director of an REU Ocean Sciences site.

The ASLO Multicultural Program (ASLOMP) provides students full support (travel, housing, food, and registration) to participate in the annual meetings of ASLO.  The next ASLO meeting will take place June 3 – 9 in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.  Students will present their own research in a special 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, which includes a subscription to all of the ASLO publications.

Special activities include; Pre-conference workshops, an exciting field trip, working with "meeting mentors" to help students navigate the meetings, a keynote address from a leading aquatic scientist.

Since 1990, over 1,300 different students have participated in ASLOMP, coming from over 200 different colleges and universities. Many past participants now return as mentors in the program.

Note that ASLOMP 2023 will require international travel.  Applicants must be current with Covid vaccinations and possesses a valid US passport.  All selected participants will be required to attend the full conference and suite of activities.

The 2023 ASLOMP application is due by November 30, 2022 at 11:59 PM EST.

This program is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
