Our program exposes students to a diversity of research projects that collectively illustrate how natural systems function and how science progresses. Through the course of the summer we provide students with information on various career options in ecology and the environmental sciences. Next summer we will offer up awards that carry a $5775 stipend + an additional meal budget, free housing, and a budget for supplies and research-related travel. The number of students invited (up to 10) will be contingent upon renewal of our funding from the National Science Foundation. Interested students can access the necessary application form and instructions directly from our APPLICATION PAGE. We strongly recommend filling out an application at least two weeks before the application deadline. The application and all supporting materials are due on March 1, 2017. If you need further information please send an email to Dr. Kyle Haynes or call 540 837-1758 ext 292 M-F, 9-5 Eastern Time. These fellowships are only available for U.S. citizens and permanent U.S. residents.
