The 2017 CSUMB Ocean Science REU program is now accepting applications.
Students in our REU program can choose to conduct research in Monterey Bay in the following areas:
- Marine Biology and Ecology

In addition to electing to work with mentors at CSU Monterey Bay, students can also elect to work with mentors at our Monterey Bay area REU partner institutions. These include:
- Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve
- Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University
- Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute
- Moss Landing Marine Labs
- Naval Postgraduate School
Our complete mentor listing can be found here: https://csumb.edu/reu/mentors-and-projects
Students will be provided with a $5,000 stipend in addition to support for travel, room and board. REU students will also receive post REU support to attend conferences and in applying to graduate programs. The application portal will close on February 13th, 2017 at 11:59 PM PST. Our 10 week summer program will run from June 4th to August 12th, 2017. Additional program details can be found on our homepage: https://csumb.edu/reu.
We especially encourage applications from student groups historically underrepresented in the Ocean Sciences and students with limited to no research experience. Preference is given to student applicants who are current sophomores or juniors.
