Research Opportunities

All UMBS courses involve research, typically in the form of a group or individual research project. You will gain first-hand research experience simply by taking our classes.

However, you may wish to pursue your own research independent of any scheduled UMBS spring or summer courses. Our Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program allows students to collaborate with faculty on a research project, attend special workshops and group discussions, receive a stipend, and spend an unforgettable summer up at UMBS. 

The application for 2020 is available now. This year's program will run from around June 10 - August 7, 2020. Note: The undergraduate course EEB 400 and the graduate-level course EEB 700 are available if you wish to enroll for Independent Study credit and have a faculty advisor. 

The Biological Station has many student research funding opportunities. Consult the fellowship descriptions for deadlines and application procedures.
