About this Program: 

Every other winter for the past 30 years, AIO has offered a special 9-day Tropical Program in tropical marine ecology for alumni of our advanced sessions. In the past, we have run programs in Jamaica, Bermuda and, most recently in Belize in November 2021. For the Belize session, we share the facilities of the Tropical Research and Education Center (TREC) near San Pedro on Ambergis Caye. In addition to conducting research, we snorkel daily through the offshore reefs.   Watch a video about the program here

Students who have participated in the AIO Advanced Program and whose work is exemplary may apply for the Tropical Program. An informational meeting will be held during the summer sessions and students may apply as soon as the session ends.
