Welcome to Summer Programs at Shoals Marine Laboratory (SML)

Operating under the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University* in cooperation with the University of New Hampshire in Durham, Shoals Marine Lab offers a unique opportunity for students to experience marine science IN THE FIELD! Located on 95-acre Appledore Island in the Gulf of Maine, this remote yet accessible environment allows students to LEARN BY DISCOVERY, surrounded by the ocean and mentored by an outstanding academic staff.

*Cornell University has been accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education since 1921.

The facilities on Appledore Island are complimented by the ocean-going capabilities of the Shoals Marine Lab-owned research vessels, JOHN M.KINGSBURY, and the JOHN B. HEISER. Shoals on Appledore Island is a GREEN campus; find out more about how Shoals is Sustainable!

SML's academic program includes an array of credit courses for undergraduates, high school students, graduates and professionals. Opportunities also exist for researchers, citizen science, visiting groups and the general public.
