Please invite your undergraduate students to apply for Maryland Sea Grant’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Estuarine Science.
It is a great opportunity. Spend a summer by the Chesapeake Bay.
– 12 week program: May 22 to August 14, 2011.
– $4200 stipend plus housing and travel support to and from Maryland
– Applications due: February 22, 2011
– Apply http://www.mdsg.umd.edu/programs/research/reu/apply/form/index.html
We select undergraduates in diverse disciplines, including engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, ecology and marine and environmental science.
Details and application guidance at our web site: http://www.mdsg.umd.edu/REU
We are particularly interested in supporting talented students from institutions where access to marine science and to research projects is limited and who are from underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Since 1989, NSF has supported bringing students to conduct individual research projects with a scientist-mentor at either Chesapeake Biological Lab or Horn Point Lab of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
If you have any questions please feel free to email or call me (301-405-6373). I apologize for any cross posting of this announcement.
