Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Marine and Estuarine Science
About: Undergraduates interested in marine and estuarine sciences attend seminars, workshops and field trips, and receive instruction about scientific ethics, library resources for research, experimental design, and data analysis. The internship culminates in a student presentation of their research results. The internship pays a stipend to each student over the course of the summer, and housing and meals are provided. Students must attend the entire 10-week session to receive the stipend.
Funding: The program is funded by the National Science Foundation.

Project SEED (Socially Engaged Entrepreneur Development) Program
June through August
About: UMES and the American Chemical Society (ACS) partnered to offer local, ambitious, economically disadvantaged or underrepresented high school students the opportunity to work in an academic, industrial or government research laboratory for eight weeks during the summer. The program exposes youth to science through learning and discovery, while allowing them to earn income and enjoy nurturing and supportive relationships within the scientific community. If a SEED student then chooses UMES, they are eligible for an ACS Project SEED scholarship.
Funding: The project is funded in part by the American Chemical Society.
