Explore Oceanography at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
2012 Summer Student and Minority Fellowships
Each fellow conducts a research project under the guidance of a member of the Scientific or Senior Technical Staff. Fellows have an excellent opportunity to select and pursue a research problem of their own with access to more than two hundred practicing scientists and engineers and the facilities of a major oceanographic institution. Fellowship recipients also participate in a one-day practicum research cruise. This program aims to provide hands-on experience in ocean studies to a promising group of students with potential career interest in oceanography and/or marine policy.
