2017 CSUMB Ocean Science REU

I am writing to you today to enlist your assistance in advertising the 2017 CSUMB Ocean Science REU program to your undergraduate students. We are now accepting applications.

Students in our REU program can choose to conduct research in Monterey Bay in the following areas:

Marine Biology and Ecology

Ocean Engineering


Marine Geology

In addition to electing to work with mentors at CSU Monterey Bay, students can also elect to work with mentors at our Monterey Bay area REU partner institutions. These include:

Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve
Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute
Moss Landing Marine Labs
Naval Postgraduate School

Our complete mentor listing can be found here: https://csumb.edu/reu/mentors-and-projects

Students will be provided with a $5,000 stipend in addition to support for travel, room and board. REU students will also receive post REU support to attend conferences and in applying to graduate programs. The application portal will close on February 13th, 2017 at 11:59 PM PST. Our 10 week summer program will run from June 4th to August 12th, 2017. Additional program details can be found on our homepage: https://csumb.edu/reu

We especially encourage applications from student groups historically underrepresented in the Ocean Sciences and students with limited to no research experience. Preference is given to student applicants who are current sophomores or juniors.

Please feel free to have your students contact us at our REU email address (reu@csumb.edu). I have attached a flyer that can be shared with students but if you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you for your assistance.
