Woods Hole Partnership Education Program

A Summer Science Intern Program Designed to Promote Diversity

The Woods Hole Partnership Educational Program (PEP) is designed primarily for college students (second semester sophomores, juniors or seniors) who want to spend a summer gaining practical experience in marine and environmental science. The program consists of a four-week course in the sea-side village of Woods Hole, followed by six-to-eight week research projects.

PEP is a new program being launching in 2009 by a consortium of institutions that are committed to increasing diversity in the Woods Hole science community.

PEP is supported by the Woods Hole Diversity Initiative to promote diversity in the Woods Hole science community. The program especially seeks students from minorities under-represented in ocean and environmental sciences -- this includes African American, Hispanic, Native American, Alaska Natives, and Asian Pacific Island students.

Please help us get the word out to students who might be interested. Note that the priority date for admission and funding consideration is the end of this month (January 31).

Apply to PEP by filling out and electronically submitting the application form.

Priority in admissions and financial support will be given to students who have applied on or before January 31, 2009. The 2009 PEP class will be announced March 11th.

For more information, contact PEP Director Dr. Ambrose Jearld, Jr., NOAA Fisheries (Ambrose.Jearld AT or 508-495-2318) or Dr. Paulinus Chigbu, University of Maryland Eastern Shore (pchigbu AT or 410-621-3034).
