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 marine science. The program will take place at the University of Delaware’s Hugh R. Sharp campus in the beach community of Lewes, located on the shores of the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean.
