Another summer research opportunity, this one at Georgia Tech. The application deadline is February 15, 2012. At that time faculty mentors will select participants and will offer students places in the program starting late-February. The full-time, 10-week program will start in late May and run until the end of July. Participants will receive a stipend of $4500 plus accommodations with kitchen facilities in university housing, and help with travel expenses to and from Atlanta.
Students can go to our website to get more information and to apply. Any U.S. citizen or permanent resident who is currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program is eligible, unless they have already been part of an NSF-REU program in Ocean Sciences or unless they will graduate before this summer. We are particularly interested in increasing our proportion of minority students and in reaching students at non-PhD granting universities.
