Description:
The Translational Ecology for Undergraduates program provides 10 students with hands-on research experience in ecology during 12 weeks in the summer. Students work closely with a mentor scientist and gain confidence in doing independent research. Opportunities include (but are not limited to): eavesdropping in birds, mosquito ecology, ecological changes in lakes, carbon and nitrogen dynamics in forest soils. Students also engage in enrichment activities designed to foster critical reflection about science and its linkages to society. To apply, students must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or its possessions. Underrepresented minorities and first generation college students are encouraged to apply. Students will receive a stipend of $6,600, on-campus housing, and a food allowance of $900.
