Undergraduate Marine Research Scholarship

A $1,000 scholarship in marine biology will be awarded to a female undergraduate student who will be participating in an identified 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, she should provide details for one or more applications that the applicant has submitted but not yet received confirmation of the award. 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. This scholarship can be used to offset expenses (e.g., travel, lodging, research expenses) related to the internship. The internship is typically ~3 month long (or completed during a summer session), though longer duration exceptions will be considered. 

Sponsored by WDHOF members Sue Morra, Ph.D. and Kathleen Dudzinski, Ph.D.
