The Marine Institute’s 2021 Summer Bursary Scholarship Programme is under way as a group of 10 undergraduate students have been welcomed by the State agency for marine research to expand their knowledge and understanding of marine science and related areas.

Running for over 30 years, as previously reported on Afloat.ie, the programme resumes this year in line with the Government’s public health guidelines. Through this programme students are brought together from a wide range of disciplines and educational institutes.

The bursary programme provides students with a unique opportunity to form connections with fellow students nationwide, experts in their fields and the wider marine sector.

“The work experience programme gives students the opportunity to further their knowledge and research in their particular area of interest and gain insight into careers in the marine sector,” said Ms Helen McCormick, senior laboratory analyst at the Marine Institute and co-ordinator of the bursary programme.

The programme helps to equip students with the skills to become ocean leaders and marine champions of the future, and is a key initiative of the Marine Institute's Strategic Plan 2018-2022: Building Ocean Knowledge, Delivering Ocean Services.

Welcoming this year’s students, Mick Gillooly, interim CEO at the Marine Institute, said: “The bursary programme is a long-established scholarship in the Marine Institute that continues to support and inspire the next generation of marine scientists and experts.

“Students are given a unique opportunity to learn from and form key connections with professionals across a range of areas in the marine sector.”

The Bursary Scholarship Programme is aimed at undergraduates of universities, institutes of technology and national institutes for higher education. To participate in the programme, undergraduate students must have completed two years of study in a relevant discipline by the beginning of June 2021.
