REU – water quality/interdisciplinary, U. Wisconsin

FW by Andy Wilson>>>>

Please let your undergraduate students know about an opportunity to participate in a summer research internship with the National Science Foundation sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site at University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie, Wisconsin. This is the second year of this REU program; you may have received an announcement at this point last year as well. We select 10 new students each summer.

The LAKES (Linking Applied Knowledge in Environmental Sustainability) REU focuses on water quality and phosphorus mitigation in an interdisciplinary manner over an 8 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. We will start reviewing applications for the 2015 summer program on February 15th. Complete program information can be found here: If you would, please pass along this information to your colleagues around the U.S. Please see the attached flyer, if you desire printing something out and posting it on bulletin boards at your institution.
