Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU). Maryland Sea Grant is currently seeking students for the summer 2010 REU program. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the program pairs students with marine scientists at the Horn Point Laboratory (HPL) in Cambridge or the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL) in Solomons to conduct academic research projects for twelve weeks (May 23-August 15). The labs are part of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES).

To be eligible, students should be undergraduates who have completed at least two years of study towards a bachelor's degree and still be undergraduates in the fall of 2010. Preference is given to students who are rising seniors. Those from underrepresented groups and institutions with limited research opportunities are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications are due February 17, 2010. To apply, visit the web at
