Research Experience for Undergraduates at UVA's Mountain Lake Biological Station


Deadline: 2015-02-20 (National)

UVA's Mountain Lake Biological Station's Research Experience for Undergraduates brings students from around the country together for an exciting ten-week summer program of guided, but independent, original research in field biology. The program supports ten positions each summer. Applicants should have course experience in fields such as ecology, behavior, and evolution.


NSF-supported REU participants must be current undergraduate students and must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An undergraduate student is a student who is enrolled in a degree program (part-time or full-time) leading to a baccalaureate or associate degree.




All room and board expenses are covered by the program. Participants pay no fees or tuition charges. There is a budget to cover participant project expenses, and a limited budget for travel to and from MLBS. Participants may submit requests for travel and project costs when the program does not cover them directly. Participants are awarded a "take-home" stipend of $5,000.
