Undergraduate Marine Research Internship (This award is for women and men)
Applications are now open and will close on October 31, 2021.
A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a still-matriculated undergraduate student (woman or man) who will be participating in a confirmed internship program with a focus in marine biology. The internship and logistical details should be identified by the applicant and provided with their application packet. If the applicant has not yet received the internship award, s/he should provide details for one or more applications that the applicant has submitted but not yet received confirmation of the award (but note that receipt of the UMRI award is preferential to an applicant with an internship confirmed).
Students must provide documentation to verify that they have completed at least 60 credits or hold third-year (junior) status prior to starting the internship; applicants must still be enrolled in an academic program during participation in the internship for which they are applying. This scholarship can be used to offset expenses (e.g., travel, lodging, research expenses) related to the internship. The internship is typically ~3 months (or completed during a summer session), though longer duration exceptions will be considered. DEADLINE for application is JAN 15, 2022.
