NSF Funded REU-Site Program: Independent Field Research in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior at Mountain Lake Biological Station
Mountain Lake Biological Station's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU-Sites) program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and brings undergraduate students from around the country together for an exciting ten-week summer program of guided, but independent, original research in field biology.
The MLBS REU program provides participants with take home a stipend of $5,000; it covers all room and board expenses and has a project and travel budget. Participants pay no fees or tuition charges of any kind.
The program supports ten positions each summer. Applicants should have course experience in fields such as ecology, behavior, and evolution. A letter of recommendation from a teacher or someone who can comment on how you would do at a field station and as an independent researcher is more important than your GPA.
Application details and more program info may be found on the MLBS website.
