One of our goals at CIEE Research Station Bonaire is to provide knowledge, technical expertise and field experience that will strengthen students’ portfolio when it comes to future academic or professional endeavors such as internships, grad school and jobs related to marine science. With this in mind, we want to highlight (and congratulate!) some of our alumni that have recently started new academic and professional experiences. A reflection of their hard work and preparation, and individual achievements we truly share with joy.
