ASLO (Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography)
Multicultural Program - 2017
Hampton University, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and the National Science Foundation offer special opportunities for diverse students (undergraduate and graduate) interested in aquatic sciences (oceanography, limnology, stream ecology, marine biology, fisheries, etc.). The program includes students from underrepresented groups and other undergraduate students who are nominated by the director of an REU Ocean Sciences site. The ASLO Multicultural Program provides students full support (travel, housing, food, and registration) to participate in the annual meetings of ASLO, to take place in Honolulu, HI, Feb. 25 – Mar. 3, 2017.
Students present their own research in a student symposium or the regular ASLO sessions. They gain valuable learning experiences and exposures to the most recent developments in the aquatic sciences. Participants make important professional contacts that will help them achieve academic and career objectives. Students also receive a free membership in ASLO, including a subscription to the journal Limnology and Oceanography.
Special activities include; A pre-conference workshop, exciting field trips, working with "meeting mentors" to help students navigate the meetings, a keynote address from a leading aquatic scientist.
Since 1990, over 950 different students have participated in ASLOMP, coming from over 150 different colleges and universities. Many past participants now return as mentors in the program.
Application is due September 21, 2016.
This program is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
