Diversity Research and Education Programs
The MBL hosts numerous diversity programs for students and researchers, including:
The NSF REU Biological Discovery in Woods Hole (BDWH) Program is designed as an intensive, 10-week experience for undergraduates at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The major portion of each student’s time will be dedicated to an individual research project under the direction of one of the participating mentors.
The Partnership Education Program (PEP) is hosted by the six Woods Hole Science Institutions in collaboration with the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore. The program combines course work with directed independent research in earth and ocean science. The summer interns will spend 4 weeks in a summer course that surveys global climate change from the perspective the four oceanographic sub-disciplines and will also incorporate marine policy and management.
Fellowships include the Ernest Everett Just Endowed Research awards and the Ann E. Kammer Memorial Fellowship for women.
This program attracts over 400 international scholars and their families, representing over 38 different countries from around the world. MBL is designated by the U.S. Department of State as an Exchange Visitor Program and has an active international committee with WHOI.
This course targets groups underrepresented in neuroscience to increase the probability of professional success.
