Description 
The RMBL Education Program is an excellent way to decide if a career in field biology is right for you. Independent research offers an intensive mountain field work experience and emphasizes individual research projects. Students are immersed in an active scientific community, with up to 180 scientists, postdocs, graduate students, undergraduates, staff, and family members living onsite. With this critical mass of ecologists in a single location, the scientific activity is on high speed all summer.
Qualifications 
Students must be enrolled in college and be US citizens or permanent residents to receive REU awards. Students who have graduated from college can still apply to our program, but are not eligible for REU awards.
