Final Deadline: February 15, 2017

The Institution offers two programs for undergraduates.

Summer Student Fellowships are awarded to undergraduate students who will have completed their junior year at colleges or universities by the start of the fellowship period. Preference is given to students studying in any of the fields of science or engineering including but not limited to the fields of biology, chemistry, engineering, geology, geophysics, mathematics, meteorology, physics, oceanography, and marine policy. Students must have at least a tentative interest in the ocean sciences, oceanographic engineering, mathematics, or marine policy. Persons from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

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.

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