Fellowship

Through a collaboration with Woods Hole Sea Grant offsite link, the Girls in Science fellows will join researchers at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution offsite link to study the ecology and behavior of dolphins. Fellows will analyze recordings collected from hydrophones — underwater microphones — to collect data on these animals’ distinctive whistles, which function somewhat like human names. These data will be used to study questions such as whether dolphins produce more whistles during the day vs. at night and whether certain dolphins have favorite associates with whom they spend most of their time. This information is not currently known and will help inform future research.

The week-long fellowship promotes diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) and exposes young women to a variety of marine careers.

Who is eligible?: Current sophomore and junior women from Massachusetts high schools.

When: Two sessions will be offered: August 7-13, 2022 and August 14-20, 2022

Fully-funded opportunity: This program is offered at no cost to the fellows. Food, travel, and accommodations will be provided.

Application deadline: March 23, 2022

The Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research (CIGLR) administers an annual Great Lakes Summer Fellows Program, in partnership with the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL). This program helps place promising undergraduate (junior or senior as of Fall 2021*) and graduate students with both academic and federal research mentors. Through this program, students work on substantive research issues in the Great Lakes and undergo a career training program that equips them with the knowledge and skills to be the next generation of Great Lakes scientists. We seek to use these fellowships to increase diversity in STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and math) and strongly encourage applications from students who identify with groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in government and academic workforces.
