The Brown MBL Program attracts a diverse group of talented and dedicated students from around the world. Each year, a handful of graduate students from an array of disciplines join the Brown MBL PhD Program. Some students spend their first years taking courses at Brown and do not make their base at MBL full-time until their second or third year in the program. Other students remain based in Providence for the duration of their studies but work closely with one or more MBL Scientists as they pursue their research. Still other students engage in research that requires them to be at the MBL from the start of their studies. Seventeen graduate students currently are enrolled in the program, twelve students have graduated from the program with doctorates and four others have left early with Master’s.
In addition, every summer, a number of Brown undergraduates receive awards to support summer internships in MBL labs in Woods Hole or field sites across the globe.
