This program provides three weeks of classroom, field, and laboratory work to build technical, scientific, communications and ethics skills with guest and mentor lectures followed by a 2-day research cruise aboard the R/V Savannah or R/V Hatteras. During the final five weeks of the program, students will be actively engaged in research projects at Savannah State University, the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, Georgia Tech, or Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary in Savannah. Students will keep a research log, develop a seminar presentation, and submit a formal written research report. The ‘Bridge Program’ is based on more than 25 years of experience and success in attracting, retaining, and preparing individuals, particularly early in their college career and from groups underrepresented in the marine and geosciences, for success through degree programs, research experiences, inter-institutional collaboration and connection-making.

Students who have already had research experiences are NOT ELIGIBLE for this program.

This program is designed for current freshmen and sophomores majoring in the sciences, engineering or mathematics, and who are American citizens or permanent residents.

Current juniors and seniors should apply for a more traditional marine science Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. For a list of other REU programs visit
