Greetings from Woods Hole! I’m writing to let you know that space is still available for our late spring SEA Semester: Marine Biodiversity & Conservation program, March 20 – June 17, 2017.
Given that your institution is on a trimester or quarter calendar, there may still be time for your students to consider spending a term off campus with us. Automatic $2,500 scholarships are available in addition to our standing $2,500 trimester/quarter award!
As a reminder, this program is an integrated upper-level science semester that applies modern biodiversity research to place-based resource management in the coastal and open ocean. Students will conduct authentic biodiversity and policy research that contributes directly to the international effort to protect the Sargasso Sea. They will then present their research findings and policy recommendations to a panel of invited experts as part of a formal, professional symposium.
If you know of a science major looking for an intensive, field-based experience this spring, please encourage them to learn more by visiting the program page. This program carries 18 transferable credits from Boston University.
Prerequisites apply: Students must have taken at least three lab science courses (one at 300-level or higher) or received permission from SEA faculty.
