We enthusiastically invite you to apply for the 2019 Physiology Course at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA. Since its inception in 1892, the Physiology course has educated generations of leaders in cell biology and has contributed to seminal discoveries, including the Nobel-prize winning discovery of Cyclin B. In this tradition, the 2019 Physiology course provides an incredible opportunity for participants to use cutting-edge tools as they conduct hands-on research with investigators who are at the forefront of quantitative cell biology. As part of its mission to advance new generations of researchers, the Physiology course is strongly committed to recruiting promising students, postdocs, and junior faculty from underrepresented groups, including women and underrepresented minorities, to enroll in the course.

If you are a Pell Grant recipient who is interested in studying or interning abroad, you should apply to the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program.
The Gilman Scholarship awards over 2,300 scholarships of up to $5,000 (plus up to an additional $3,000 for critical language study) to undergraduates who study or intern abroad for a summer, semester, or academic year.
VCU Education Abroad will be hosting a Gilman Scholarship Writing Workshop to help you craft your application.
Gilman Scholarship Writing Workshop
Monday, February 4th, 12 – 1:30 PM
SGA Chambers, Commons (formerly the Forum Room)
Why come to the Gilman Workshop?
We will help you craft an application that maximizes your chances of receiving Gilman funding, and continue VCU students’ track record of success in writing nationally-competitive Gilman applications.
Why apply to the Gilman Scholarship?
The purpose of the Gilman is to broaden the student population that studies and interns abroad, by supporting undergraduates who might not otherwise participate due to financial constraints. The program encourages students to choose non-traditional destinations, especially those outside of Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The Gilman Scholarship supports students who have been traditionally under-represented in education abroad, including (but not limited to) students with high financial need; community college or transfer students; students in fields such as technology, science, and engineering; students with diverse racial and/or ethnic backgrounds; and students with disabilities.
If you do not receive a Pell Grant but are interested in exploring scholarships and sources of funding for education abroad, please see internal and external scholarship listings, and feel free to reach out to us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Summer REU Program in Marine Science at the University of Delaware, is an NSF-Funded Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program for Summer 2019. Applications are due Friday, February 8th. We especially encourage applications from students from community colleges, institutions with limited research opportunities and from underrepresented groups in ocean science.
Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Division of Ocean Sciences, this REU program supports ten undergraduate students to conduct research in chemical, physical, or biological oceanography, marine biology or marine geology. The program will take place at the University of Delaware’s Hugh R. Sharp campus in the resort community of Lewes, located on the shores of the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean. In addition to hands-on research experience, student support includes a $6,200 stipend, campus housing, and travel assistance.
