Blandy Research Experiences for UndergraduatesLocation: Student
Agency: Unversity of Virginia and Howard University
Due Date: March 1, 2017
Description: The program emphasizes experimental, field-based approaches to a wide variety of topics such as plant-animal interactions, pollination ecology, landscape ecology, and ecosystem ecology. Successful applicants will receive a $5775 stipend, additional money for food, and free housing. Each student picks a research mentor from our pool of faculty members and graduate students and then conducts an independent research project. The students will gain experience in experimental design, data collection, analytical techniques, and written and oral presentation of findings. REU students also benefit from several professional development workshops. This is a truly wonderful opportunity for an undergraduate student contemplating a future in science.
