The Institution offers two programs for undergraduates.

Summer Student Fellowships support science or engineering students interested in oceanography or marine policy. Fellows pursue an independent research program at Woods Hole for 12 weeks in the summer and receive a stipend of $3,900. Application process opens in November and closes in February each year.

Undergraduates who have completed their junior or senior year of course work are eligible. Traineeships in Oceanography for Minority Group Undergraduates support minority students studying the physical or natural sciences, mathematics, or engineering. Applicants must have completed at least two semesters of college. The traineeship is for either a 10- or a 12-week period during the summer or for a semester. Both awards may include transportation to Woods Hole. Application process opens in November and closes in February each year.

There is also a volunteer program for select, competitive students.
