The REU in marine and estuarine science at UMES provides opportunities for early-career undergraduates to get research experience.
As part of the REU program, students produce a poster, which they present during the summer experience and can submit to conferences.
REU interns get to work closely with a faculty mentor and graduate students and gain exposure to the research faculty at UMES.
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) in Marine and Estuarine Science program at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) offers paid, ten-week summer internships to undergraduates interested in marine and estuarine science. With the assistance of faculty mentors, program staff and graduate students, interns conduct research projects, take field trips, and attend seminars and workshops related to science careers. The program provides housing, meals, travel costs and a stipend to interns.
This internship program is designed for rising sophomores and rising juniors, but all college students are welcome to apply. The number of positions will depend on current funding availability.
Since 2010, the REU program at UMES has trained 93 undergraduate students from more than 15 institutions in the marine and estuarine sciences.
Applications are due on March 1, 2017. The program runs from June 5 - August 11, 2017.
