The Association of Marine Laboratories of the Caribbean
In order 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. Grants 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-member institutions. Grants of up to USD $1,000 are available for work involving travel among member institutions and grants up to USD $400 are available for work that does not involve travel among AMLC-member institutions 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.
Many AMLC-member institutions have pledged in-kind support in the form of fee-waivers to awardees. You must contact the institution where you are interested in working to determine details and to request a letter of support.
AMLC host institutions must be in good standing at the time of the application and award. A full list of AMLC member institutions in good standing can be found at http://www.amlc-carib.org/members/institute_map.html.
