The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) in Marine and Estuarine Science program at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) offers paid, ten-week summer internships to undergraduates interested in Marine and Estuarine Sciences.

*The 2024 REU Program will be held from June 3-August 9.

With the assistance of faculty mentors, program staff and graduate students, interns conduct research projects, take field trips, and attend seminars and workshops related to science careers. The program provides housing, meals, travel costs and a stipend to interns. 

This internship program is designed for rising sophomores and rising juniors, but all college students are welcome to apply. The number of positions will depend on current funding availability.

Since 2009, the REU program at UMES has trained more than 123 undergraduate students from more than 60 institutions in the Marine and Estuarine Sciences  

The Program will run from June 3-Aug. 9, 2024. Applications will be accepted through Feb. 29, 2024.

*All dates and program information are tentative and subject to change based on University policy. Our top priority is keeping our interns and campus safe and healthy. We will make changes and add details about safety protocols for Summer 2024 as they become available. We thank you for your patience and flexibility in this ever changing situation.
