By : Categories : Announcements,Student Interest Comment: 0 Comment

New summer research internship available with the NSF-sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site at University of Wisconsin-Stout in Menomonie, Wisconsin.

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 15-August 8), with projects in sociology, microbiology, economics, geology, anthropology, mathematics, or communications. 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. The deadline to submit applications for the 2014 summer program is March 1st. Complete program information can be found here: http://www.uwstout.edu/lakes/. Attached you will also find a flyer and a brochure. Please also pass along this information to your colleagues around the U.S.
