View Poster


The Woods Hole Partnership Educational Program (PEP) is designed primarily for college juniors and seniors who want to spend a summer gaining practical experience in marine and environmental science. The program consists of a four-week course and a six-to-ten week research project all in the sea-side village of Woods Hole.

PEP was launched in 2009 by a consortium of institutions committed to increasing diversity in the Woods Hole science community. The 2015 program will run May 30 to August 8.


PEP is a project of the Woods Hole Diversity Initiative, a multi-institutional effort to promote diversity in the Woods Hole science community.
