Multicultural Initiative in the Marine Sciences: Undergraduate Participation (MIMSUP)

The National Science Foundation-funded MIMSUP program is designed to increase diversity within the next generation of marine scientists. Participants receive intensive training in the marine sciences and in professional opportunities available to those who choose this career path. Applications are encouraged, in particular, from U.S. citizens belonging to groups currently underrepresented in the marine sciences (i.e., Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, African Americans, Latino/Hispanics and Pacific Islanders).

Eight selected students spend two quarters (January 6 - June 12 with a spring break from March 21-30) at the Shannon Point Marine Center (Western Washington University) taking introductory and specialized courses in the marine sciences (31 quarter credit hours), attending seminars and workshops, exploring career opportunities, and engaging in supervised research. They also attend a regional or national scientific meeting. After the program, students return to their home institutions to complete their undergraduate programs.


Undergraduate students

Funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation provides full financial support.This includes:
*Tuition and fees for two quarters
*Housing in the SPMC dormitory
*One round trip between the student's residence and SPMC
*A work-study allowance of $3,677 total to help defray food costs for the duration of the program
*Students are responsible for purchasing and preparing their own food. There is a well-equipped kitchen facility for that purpose.
