Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Integrative Tropical Biology at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama.
The program will run from June 6 – August 13 2016 with an application deadline on February 15 next year. During the 10-week REU summer program, interns will experience several aspects of project design, fieldwork and research on existing projects led by STRI scientists. Students will receive a highly competitive stipend, travel expenses, food and housing during their stay in Panama.
STRI looking for advanced undergraduate students (third or fourth year) interested in the life sciences, broadly defined, who are interested in exploring the processes that generate our world’s extraordinary diversity. To qualify for NSF REU funds, applicants must be U.S. citizen or permanent resident. New funding from Panama’s National Secretariat of Science, Technology and Innovation (SENACYT) will allow Panamanian students to pair up with U.S. students in the 2016 program. Our program reaches across disciplines and in addition, we hope to identify a diverse cohort of students and encourage applications from women, ethnic minorities, economically disadvantaged students, and students from institutions that lack direct access to research opportunities.
