The NSF-funded Healthy Streams, Healthy Coasts Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at University of Louisiana at Lafayette is now accepting applications through the NSF ETAP system. Applications will be accepted through Feb 8th for the 2021 summer program. Students accepted to this competitive program will spend 8 weeks in the heart of Cajun Country in Lafayette, Louisiana, working with leading researchers in interdisciplinary fields related to watershed, coastal, and marine science.
Please note: for Summer 2021, we are currently planning for an in-person program. However, everything is bound by the local safety and health regulations due to COVID-19. The program will happen in some form (in-person, remote, or hybrid), and we will make a final decision prior to offers being made in March.
The Healthy Streams, Healthy Coasts REU program is committed to enhancing the diversity, equity, and inclusion of scientific communities and sharing our science with broader audiences. Students from minoritized groups in STEM, first generation students, and students without undergraduate research opportunities at their home universities or colleges are highly encouraged to apply. Participation in the REU program comes with a stipend ($600/week), travel support, on-campus housing, and support for research and conference presentations following the summer program.
