About


For over 50 years, Shoals Marine Lab on Appledore Island has been a proud leader in marine science, education, and research. As the largest undergraduate-serving marine lab in the country, we pride ourselves on our student-driven focus. SML offers a wide range of marine science and sustainbility-related topics to explore—from oceanography to shark biology, marine parasitology, and seabirds. Hands-on learning sets us apart from classroom-based courses, allowing students to see themselves as active scientists and gives them an enriched experience that they will carry with them in their future careers. 

Funds raised during The (603) Challenge go directly to support our students. 80% of Shoals students need financial aid to participate in our programs, meaning students need your support to access transformational experiences at Appledore Island! We have our own bonus challenge this year: 100 donors unlocks $10,000 from John Morison '76 and Lynne Dougherty '78, and 150 donors unlock a transformative $100,000 from an anonymous underwriter. Help us reach our goal and create new opportunities with your gift!

Only donors who have not already given to this year’s challenge qualify.
