Each year the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory (RMBL) matches

approximately 40 students with mentors from around the world.  Students

have opportunities to work on a wide array of ecological and evolutionary

field projects.  Additionally, students have the opportunity to supplement

their research project with additional training in field ecology or

wildlife biology.  RMBL provides REU funding for approximately 10

students.  RMBL also makes available additional scholarships.  Consequently

financial need should not preclude students from applying.

This is a wonderful opportunity for students thinking about a career in the

sciences.  RMBL is located in Gothic, Colorado, a stunningly beautiful

location in the Rockies.  Because we host approximately 100 graduate

students and senior scientists, undergraduates have an opportunity to learn

about graduate programs from around the world.  Many undergraduates end up

as co-authors on scientific papers and start building professional networks

that foster their career across a lifetime.  We have had many

undergraduates turn their summer research into a senior thesis project,

even though they have not necessarily had someone from their school present

at RMBL during the summer.

Our program does fill.  We encourage strongly motivated

applicants, including applicants who need financial support, to submit their

online application by Feb. 15 for REU applicants and by March 1 for RMBL

Scholarships.  Students can apply for both sources of funds with one
