Doc Gruber Memorial Scholarship
Supported by McPZ Foundation

We understand that financial barriers can limit opportunities for people in the early stages of their careers, and we are making efforts to make internships more accessible for people with financial constraints. Thanks to the support of the McPZ Foundation, we are pleased to announce the Doc Gruber Memorial Scholarship for early career scientists wishing to intern with the BBFSF in 2023/2024.


To be considered, please read the Internship Information page, and fill out the entire Internship Application Form, including the section marked Scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded for a duration of two months, and will cover all costs associated with living at a remote field station (shared accommodation, three meals a day, Internet, laundry), all field activities, instruction and training, as well as return flights from Fort Lauderdale to Bimini.


Funding for scholarships is limited and applications are competitive. We are seeking hard working individuals who are eager to take on new challenges, work proactively and learn a variety of field skills ranging from boating and freediving to gear preparation and maintenance.  

Doc Gruber Memorial Scholarships are available for Bahamian & international applicants who are 18 years of age and up.
