About the Opportunity

Woods Hole Summer Fellowship is a fully funded opportunity designed for students to participate in the last summer.

All Summer Student Fellows present a mid-summer oral progress report. At the end of the summer, all Summer Fellows are required to prepare a written report describing their research. Summer Student Fellows are also required to make a public oral or poster presentation of their results.

All Fellows are required to attend the Summer Lecture Series as well as the Ethics in Science Workshop. In addition, Fellows are encouraged to participate in the busy summer schedule of seminars and events in the Woods Hole scientific community, which provides an excellent introduction to the many facets of marine science.

Woods Hole Summer Fellowship Details:
The Woods Hole Summer Fellowship is awarded to pursue an independent research project under the guidance of a member of the Scientific or Senior Technical Staff. These projects typically are suggested by the advisor, and are agreed upon jointly by both the student and advisor. The advisors make every effort to help the student select and pursue a research project that can provide meaningful results in one summer’s work. Fellows have an excellent opportunity to select and pursue a research project with access to more than two hundred practicing research scientists and engineers and to the facilities of a major oceanographic institution.

Eligibility Criteria

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. Students who will graduate before the fellowship begins are not eligible to apply. The program is designed for students to participate in the last summer of their undergraduate years.

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, or marine policy. Through the Summer Student Fellowship program, WHOI’s aim is to provide promising students with a meaningful first-hand introduction to research in oceanography, oceanographic engineering, or marine policy.

Members of groups underrepresented in ocean science and engineering are encouraged to apply.

Students in a three year Bachelor’s Degree Program, such as those in the UK, must be in their second year
Students in a five year combined Bachelor/Master’s Degree Program must be in the third year of the program
