Inspired by efforts to increase racial diversity in the marine conservation field, The Roger Arliner Young (RAY) Marine Conservation Diversity Fellowship Program is a response to the call for mainstream environmental organizations to work to increase and provide supported career pathways for people of color within the field.Read more
The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) offers a suite of university-level summer courses, designed to immerse students in the study of marine science, with a program of coursework and research that is unique in marine science education. Founded in 1903, BIOS is a world-class ocean science research and education facility. BIOS summer courses in marine science provide undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to expand their studies into subtropical environments and/or to investigate topics in ocean science, which are not offered within the curricula of theirhome institutions. BIOS has quick and easy access to a diverse array of subtropical marine habitats which, combined with lectures, discussions and integrated field work and laboratory exercises, provide an optimal environment for experiential learning.Read more
Ocean Global Change Biology REU @ UCSB
The goal of the OGCB REU program is to provide students with a supportive
environment in which to conduct a student-led project on the impacts of
environmental change on marine and organisms and ecosystems.
Here at UCSB, we have a world-class research faculty and a community of
people that support and foster undergraduates in research experiences.
[scholarship]: American Salvage Association/North American Marine Environment Protection Assoc. Call for Papers
It’s that time of year again when the American Salvage Association (ASA) and the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) join forces to host its Annual Call for Papers – Marine Sciences Competition. Running for its 7th consecutive year, the program opens the door for high school and college undergraduate students to demonstrate their passion in the Marine Sciences by participating in the program either individually or as a team. The initiative is intended to highlight the importance of preserving the marine environment through the use of sound environmental practices, raise awareness of the art and science of marine salvage and engineering, and to promote careers within the greater maritime industry. Each paper is reviewed by a technical committee of marine industry experts and is evaluated on a wide range of criteria including originality, data collection, supporting evidence, and tangibility within the real-world environment.Read more
Cape RADD is a new marine field course which specializes in teching SCUBA diving and free diving as approaches to data collection on the marine ecology of South Africa. We facilitate training courses for individuals or groups who want to learn more about the marine environment, conservation and research through hands on field experience and diver development. Cape RADD courses include training in multiple data collection and field operation techniques, theoretical workshops and presentations from field biologists and dive experts in their field.Read more
The Oregon Institute of Marine Biology’s REU program: “Exploration of Marine Biology on the Oregon Coast” (EMBOC) will be accepting 10 students, five from 2-year colleges and five from 4-year colleges, to conduct research this summer (June 17 – August 18, 2018) at the University of Oregon’s marine lab. REU students will develop individual marine research projects in one of our eight faculties’ labs and participate in weekly seminars, professional development workshops, and social activities from exploring local marine habitats like rocky shores and sand dunes to touring other institutions that specialize in marine science.Read more
Undergraduate students are invited to apply for Maryland Sea Grant’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Estuarine Science. http://www.mdsg.umd.edu/REU. 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. This is a great opportunity to conduct research with a mentor and spend a summer by the Chesapeake Bay.Read more

Schmidt Ocean Institute is pleased to announce our call for the 2018 Student Opportunities program.
Schmidt Ocean Institute seeks to provide college, undergraduate, and graduate students with a chance to take part in seagoing scientific research aboard Falkor in coordination with our organization and the principal investigators leading at-sea research projects. The Student Opportunities Program enables us to support training of the next generation of ocean scientists and technology developers and ignite the spark of passion for ocean exploration in their minds.
Think ‘small’ when reading the latest “Tide Bite” from Friday Harbor Labs: Professor Lisa Crummet writes about her research in the summer of 2016 at FHL on ocean acidification on marine bacteria. Note that she worked with a summer REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) intern. These are fully-funded internships at FHL which include a stipend as well as room and board. The application period for REU positions is fast approaching, and will start in winter 2017.Read more
