The Lake Champlain REU Program will provide ten undergraduate students the
opportunity to conduct research on the ecological and socioeconomic
impacts of humans in the Lake Champlain ecosystem. Funded by the
National Science Foundation, REU students will participate in an
interdisciplinary cooperative model that promotes integrated thinking
across disciplines within and between the natural and social sciences.
All full-time undergraduate students with an anticipated graduation date
after June 2014 are encouraged to apply, including high school seniors
entering undergraduate study in 2014. Participants must be U.S. citizens
or permanent residents. Students from institutions with limited
research opportunities and underrepresented groups are especially
encouraged to apply.
The program runs for 10 weeks, from June 1 to August 9. Participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, free housing, a food allowance, and travel allowance if necessary.
