Blinks - NSF REU - BEACON Internship Program
Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Application deadline: March 1, 2013

Program dates: June 18 to August 10, 2013

Friday Harbor Laboratories' Blinks - NSF REU - BEACON Summer Internship Program seeks to link undergraduate students with scientist-mentors as collaborators in marine science research projects. The program takes advantage of the pristine environment, remarkable biodiversity, and the scientific and technical resources at University of Washington's marine science research facility. 

We have combined the NSF REU program with the Blinks Research Fellowship program, which targets groups who are historically underrepresented in the marine sciences, with the NSF-funded BEACON Program. With additional support from the United Negro College Fund, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the American Society for Cell Biology, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, and the Anne Hof Blinks Memorial Fellowship, the Blinks-REU Program offers a full immersion research experience for motivated undergraduates, post-baccalaureates and graduate students.

In keeping with the University of Washington's policy of encouraging diversity in its student body including underrepresented groups, the program seeks 10-15 students of diverse backgrounds and interests to participate in a eight to twelve week summer research project in the marine sciences. By linking fellows with marine scientists in a 1:1 research experience, fellows learn both the process and the substance of scientific research. As the research progresses, fellows will be encouraged to become semi-independent collaborators. The experience will expose fellows to the life and work of a marine science research laboratory. The program will incorporate workshops, seminars and training sessions in addition to hands-on research.

Mountain Lake Biological Station REU 2013

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.
