A summer research internship with the National Science Foundation sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site at University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie, Wisconsin is now accepting applications.
The LAKES (Linking Applied Knowledge in Environmental Sustainability) REU focuses on water quality and phosphorus mitigation in an interdisciplinary manner over an eight week program (June 14-August 8), with projects in sociology, biology, economics, geology, and anthropology. Students will be provided with room and board and a generous stipend during their participation in the LAKES program.
This program prioritizes under-represented students, pairing them with mentors in individual projects that collectively will contribute to a more complete understanding of the dynamic interactions of our political economy, our social networks, and our ecosystems. Applications for the 2015 summer program will be reviewed on February 15th. Complete program information can be found here.
Questions can be directed to the LAKES program email.
The program selects only 10 new students each summer.
