This guide is designed to assist members of the Eckerd College Community in identifying scholarships, grants, academic internships, and fellowship opportunities.

Marine Science

List three to five questions that you think reflect questions that guide the overall intellectual inquiry of this major.

  • to serve as part of a liberal arts education,

  • providing an awareness of the marine environment and its significance to humankind,

  • be better prepared to solve complex environmental and scientific problems.

  • Because many of today’s pressing issues in marine science must be addressed from a variety of perspectives, our program is interdisciplinary.

  • In addition to specializing in a particular track of either marine biology, marine chemistry, marine geology, or marine geophysics, you will also become broadly educated in aspects of marine science outside your specialty.

What traits/attributes do successful scholars in this area have?

  • synthesize information from the various marine science disciplines

  • speak professionally

  • utilize bibliographic resources effectively and properly document them in a scientific report.
