Smithsonian Tropical Research Program for U.S. college students


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

We are happy to announce the call for applications 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.

We are 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.

We would appreciate your support in widely distributing the program flyer program and/or reaching out to appropriate students. You can find a pdf version of the flyer here. You may find the information and application instructions on our website.

Thanks in advance for you cooperation, and please contact us at: strireu@si.edu if you have any further questions.
