This REU plans to instill Earth systems thinking and its application to the environment to undergraduates by providing them opportunities to work in interdisciplinary groups on a problem that reflects a complex, real-world situation and be trained to learn about research methods used in multiple fields or disciplines. A particular strength of the proposed REU model is the use of existing NOAA labs, NCAR and NIA, partnerships to provide cutting-edge research, educational, and professional development opportunities for undergraduate students.
Applicants should be full-time, undergraduate students with a GPA of 2.75 or better and majoring in science, technology, engineering, or mathematic (STEM) fields and social sciences. Students must be US citizens or permanent residents in order to be considered for this program. Rising sophomores with prior research experience or strong in science and, women are encouraged to apply.
