Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore

Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

Description:
The University of Hawaii at Hilo's Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded internship program. Each summer 10 student interns participate in a 4-day orientation and a 10-week research focused internship program focusing on tropical conservation science. Interns work on mentored research projects with university and local agency researchers. The focus of this program is to give those students who have limited or no research background the opportunity to gain invaluable experience in the exciting field of conservation biology. The program goal is to connect under- represented undergraduates, especially kama'aina (born and raised in Hawaii) and those of Native Hawaiian ancestry, to internship opportunities, explore the scientific research process, and to explore career and graduate school opportunities.
