Receive Up to $18K and Free Tuition Studying Marine Science at UOG
The Guam Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) at the University of Guam is seeking to increase the number and diversity of students who choose careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics by engaging students in its Graduate Research Assistantship Program (GRA). The GRA program is a year-long program open to select graduate students seeking research opportunities with Guam EPSCoR faculty.
The research benefits include tuition waiver of up to 21 credits per semester for up to three academic years for graduate students, as well as faculty and research mentoring, travel opportunities, and an annual stipend of up to $18K.
Student research training and tasks may include field work to investigate coral reefs or to deploy and retrieve oceanographic instruments, as well as work in the University of Guam Marine Laboratory’s Molecular Lab. Selected students will learn about DNA extraction and sequencing and/or how to readout and analyze data to characterize marine environments. Ideal candidates are self-motivated, well organized, and have research interests related to oceanography and coral reefs.
Space is limited. The deadline to apply is July 2, 2018. Application forms are available at www.guamepscor.org and must be emailed to Guam EPSCoR Program Manager Mellani Lubuag at firstname.lastname@example.org.
