BIOS UK Associates
BIOS UK Associates
Our scholarships allow UK university students to participate in international cutting-edge research conducted by leading professors in all fields of oceanography, marine science & ocean health at BIOS
BIOS UK believes that ocean science for human good involves not only research with tangible benefits for communities and the environment, but also education programs that highlight the many ways our lives are connected with the ocean. We view education as a crucial part of global ocean science research, helping to translate the work of our faculty into meaningful experiences for students to understand the importance of oceanography in the study of fish stock management, climate change and risk prediction, pollution and human health.
Our mission is for the advancement of experiential education through scholarship and grant funding for both undergraduate and post-graduate UK university scientists, to enable them to study and carry out research at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences in an international student and faculty community. Without scholarships of this nature they would not have access to summer courses or longer internships, which provide hands-on educational opportunities to study Bermuda's unique marine ecosystems and geology as they explore coastal and open ocean environments aboard the RV Atlantic Explorer. Under the supervision of and in collaboration with BIOS scientists, they gain field methods and unparalleled insight into the logistics required to plan and execute a research cruise. This experience affords a unique opportunity not readily available to UK students, and often one which could support their career decisions as future scientists and educators
BIOS UK Associates aims to:
- Promote experiential education of young UK scientists in oceanography & climate change in both laboratory and field study at the cutting-edge of science & technology and sharing knowledge globally.
