Opportunities for Undergraduate Students (Stony Brook and Other Institutions):

The University of Central Florida is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our NSF REU Site: Conservation, Restoration and Communication. The best way to showcase the depth and breadth of our Research Experience for Undergraduates program is to share the student projects from summer 2022. Students from the 2022 cohort undertook research projects in a wide variety of topics, including lionfish eDNA, oyster reef restoration, sea turtle ecology, puma and otter genetics, pollinator garden success, invasive frogs, sunflower chemical ecology, wetlands biogeochemistry, and coastal ecohydrology.

For 1o weeks in the summer of 2023(May 21 - July 28), we seek to fund 10 students who are under-represented in STEM, have completed their first or second years of higher education, and currently have limited hands-on research opportunities at their home institution. We additionally hope to be able to support students who are veterans, non-traditional (over 30 years old), are currently at community colleges, and/or are the first in their families to participate in higher education.
