Description: This 10-week program is funded by the National Science Foundation. Some students may be asked to arrive earlier or stay later if necessary for their particular research project. Students are expected to stay at RMBL for a full 10 weeks, regardless of starting date. There are approximately ten students selected for REU awards. The awards provide $600 toward travel costs, pay a $4,750 stipend, and cover all expenses at RMBL such as room, board, and tuition if the student wishes to receive credit for their research project. Students should have a sincere interest in a career in field biology research. Fieldwork is difficult, and often tedious. We are looking for students with the mental and intellectual maturity to commit to hard work. We will judge the application in part on financial need and on student motivation. We encourage participation by minorities currently underrepresented in biology (defined by the National Science Foundation as Native Americans (including American Indians and Alaskan Natives), African-Americans, Hispanics, and Native Pacific Islanders).
