2021 Summer Research on Chesapeake Bay Deadline February 19

Deadline: February 19, 2021 Hello, My name is Mike Allen. I’m the director of the Maryland Sea Grant Research Experiences for Undergraduates program in marine and estuarine science. I am reaching out to thank you for writing a reference letter for your student’s application to our 2020 program. We value the input that you provide by helping to give us a broader perspective of the student.   I also want to let you know that we have opened up our application period for students interested in our program for summer 2021. If you know of a strong advanced undergraduate student who would benefit from a summer research experience on the Chesapeake Bay, I encourage you to share our information with that student. We select undergraduates in diverse disciplines, including engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, toxicology, ecology and marine and environmental science. In particular, we encourage students from colleges and universities where access to marine science and to research opportunities is limited and who are from groups underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and math.  You can find more information on our website ( or download a flyer to share using this link ( I’ve included some specifics about the summer program at the bottom of this email.  Again, thank you for taking the time to serve as a letter writer!  Yours sincerely,  Mike Allen
