LAKES REU Announcement

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 fourth year of the LAKES REU program; you 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 11-August 5), with projects this year in geography, economics, biology, anthropology, and sociology.  Students will be provided with room and board and a generous stipend during their participation in the LAKES program.

This program prioritizes students under-represented in the scientific community, pairing them with mentors in individual projects.  These collectively will contribute to a more complete understanding of the dynamic interactions of our land and water, our political economy, our social networks, our culture, and our sense of place.  We will start reviewing applications for the 2017 summer program on March 1st.  Complete program information can be found here:  If you would, please pass along this information to your colleagues around the U.S.  Also, please see the attached flyer should you desire printing something out and posting it on bulletin boards at your institution.
