BLOCK III: Research Internships

The BMSC Summer Undergraduate Research Internships links undergraduate students with scientist-mentors as collaborators in marine science research projects.

The Internships will offer a full immersion research experience for motivated undergraduates. By linking interns with marine scientists in a hands-on research experience, interns learn both the process and the substance of scientific research.
