FAQ for prospective students, interns and volunteers
Graduate and undergraduate students conducting research on Coconut Island are most often enrolled in the departments of Zoology and Oceanography at the University of Hawai’i, but also include students from a variety of departments and programs across campus such as the departments of Microbiology, Geography, Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering (MBBE), Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Sciences (HNFAS), and the Global Environmental Sciences program at the department of Oceanography.
Prospective students should consult the admission requirements for these departments. Note that entry to these programs is highly competitive, with far more applicants than available places. GPAs and GRE scores are a central component of the initial short-listing process.
