The Miami University REU program in Ecology and Environment is a summer research program supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Our program is an exciting opportunity for 9-12 undergraduate students to actively engage in a 10 week collaborative research project. 

  • Each student focuses on an independent research project.
  • Research opportunities are available in the lab or field (aquatic or terrestrial environments).
  • Small groups of students and mentors form clusters that meet regularly to discuss current literature related to their projects. 
  • The summer includes field trips, short courses on ethics and professions in ecology and environmental science, and seminars by guest speakers.


In Miami University's REU program, you will learn through exciting activities and hands on research experience. Your summer will be very busy as you embark on your own research project, and participate in field trips and short courses.
