The Association of Marine Laboratories of the Caribbean
Student Grants-in-Aid of Caribbean Marine Research

To support student research and increase collaboration and diffusion of knowledge among the member institutions of the AMLC, we are pleased to announce the AMLC Student Grants-in-Aid of Caribbean Marine Research Program. Awards are available to support research by AMLC student members working (but not necessarily permanently based) at AMLC member institutions. Preference will be given to proposals that involve comparisons or collaboration among AMLC institutions. Awards of up to US $1000 are available for work involving travel among member labs and awards up to US $400 are available for work that does not involve travel among laboratories but nevertheless involves collaboration and comparisons among them. Evaluation of applications will be based on scientific merit as well as likelihood that the proposed work will foster collaboration and exchange between AMLC members. Research focused on any aspect of Caribbean marine science, policy or management will be considered.

Requirements:  Applicants must be: (1) a member of the AMLC in good standing at the time of submitting the proposal (2) enrolled in a degree program. In addition, the proposed research must involve at least one AMLC member institution in good standing.


Organizational Members:

We are looking forward to reviewing your proposals.

Best of luck! AMLC Grants-in-Aid of Caribbean Marine Research Committee

Deadline April 1, 2018. Awards will be announced following the Board of Directors meeting no later than June 1, 2018.
