Maryland Sea Grant's Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Estuarine
Science. 
 http://www.mdsg.umd.edu/REU

Since 1989, NSF has supported bringing students to conduct individual
research projects with a scientist-mentor at either Chesapeake Biological
Lab or Horn Point Lab of the University of Maryland Center for
Environmental Science. This is a great opportunity to conduct research
with a mentor and spend a summer by the Chesapeake Bay.

DETAILS:
- 12 week program: May 19 to August 11, 2013.
- $6,000 stipend plus housing and travel support to and from host
institution
- http://www.mdsg.umd.edu/REU
- Applications due: March 1, 2013
- Application and guidance

We select undergraduates in diverse disciplines, including engineering,
biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, ecology and marine and
environmental science.

We are particularly interested in supporting talented students from
institutions where access to marine science and to research projects is
limited and who are from underrepresented groups in science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM).
