Brown MBL Rosenthal Link Awards
The Charles and Phyllis Rosenthal Brown MBL Link Awards support summer undergraduate internships in the labs or at the field sites of scientists at the Marine Biological Laboratory or Brown University who conduct research within the Brown-MBL Partnership. Partnership collaborative research projects represent a wide range of fields from ecology to microbiology to pathobiology. Students should contact MBL or Brown faculty members who are active in the Brown-MBL program to explore potential internship opportunities.
All registered Brown undergraduate students who are returning to Brown in September 2012 are eligible to apply. Rising juniors and seniors are given preference. Students may not receive more than one Brown LINK award during their years at Brown.
- current Brown undergraduate student
- applied for or obtained an unpaid summer internship or one that pays less than $1,000

- not received other funding for the proposed internship (except payment of less than $1,000)
In 2011, Brown received three years of funding for undergraduate internships from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation. Six undergraduates are chosen to do research in the areas of biology and/or chemistry with mentors at Brown and the MBL. Each student selected as a Beckman scholar will be funded to do research the first summer at MBL, during the academic year at Brown, and complete the research project at Brown and/or MBL the second summer.
