The Partnership Education Program (PEP), a project of a consortium of six science institutions in Woods Hole, Mass., is seeking applicants for a 10-week summer program that combines undergraduate course work with research in marine and environmental science.
PEP is an ongoing diversity program designed to recruit talent from minority groups that are under-represented in marine and environmental sciences.
The 2012 PEP program will run May 31 through August 10. The 2012 program will cover the cost of tuition, travel, room and board, and provide a stipend. Students who apply by February 15 will have priority for admissions and financial support.
Application information and reports on the 2009, 2010 and 2011 programs are available on the Woods Hole PEP website.
