REU Eligibility

Who is eligible?

  • Participants must be currently registered at a two or four year college, and may not have received their Bachelor’s degree prior to July 2015.
  • Women, members of demographic groups traditionally underrepresented in environmental fields (e.g., Native American or Alaska Native, African American or Black, Latina/Latino or Chicana/Chicano), and students from community colleges or institutions that do not offer research opportunities for undergraduates are particularly encouraged to apply.
  • You must be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident in order to receive NSF funding.

Students at all levels of their undergraduate work are sought for this program, and may come from any major as long as they are interested in the FEW nexus.  While a component of this program will center on using computing software to engage in research, experience in programming is not required and training will be provided during the course of the program.
