Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program at the University of Michigan Biological Station (UMBS) is a competitive program funded by the National Science Foundation. Biosphere-Atmosphere-Hydrosphere Interactions in a Changing Global Environment provides a truly interdisciplinary and hands-on experience in field biology and atmospheric science. Students engage with all phases of research, from hypothesis formulation and data gathering to analysis, interpretation, and communication of scientific findings. During this nine-week program, students will:

-Work closely with a selected mentor/professor as part of an on-going research project

-Design, conduct, analyze, and report on a research project of their own

-Participate in special workshops and group discussions designed to provide the philosophical bases and technical tools needed to carry out scientific research.

Compensation

REU is funded by the National Science Foundation. REU students receive a stipend of $5,000, travel and research supplies allowance, and room and board expenses at UMBS.

Eligibility

REU students must be of at least junior status by the fall term following their REU participation. Seniors with a graduation date before August are not eligible.

Participants also must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
