Summer 2017 Bridge to Research in Marine Sciences
May 22 – July 14, 2017
On-campus housing during the program
Travel costs covered up to $500
This program provides three weeks of classroom, field, and laboratory work to build technical, scientific, communications and ethics skills with guest and mentor lectures followed by a 2-day research cruise aboard the R/V Savannah or R/V Hatteras. During the final five weeks of the program, students will be actively engaged in research projects at Savannah State University, the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, Georgia Tech, or Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary in Savannah. Students will keep a research log, develop a seminar presentation, and submit a formal written research report. The ‘Bridge Program’ is based on more than 25 years of experience and success in attracting, retaining, and preparing individuals, particularly early in their college career and from groups underrepresented in the marine and geosciences, for success through degree programs, research experiences, inter-institutional collaboration and connection-making.
