REU-RR Application

REU-Raptor Research Application Instructions:


Future REU-RR Program Dates: TBD pending funding

We welcome applications from students from all biological disciplines who are interested in field or laboratory research. Many student projects focus on ecology, behavior, conservation, wildlife biology, and physiology/genetics. We are especially interested in receiving applications from members of groups that are underrepresented in science, persons with disabilities, those returning from military service, and students from institutions where research opportunities in STEM are limited.

Be sure to check the eligibility requirements on the ETAP application for the REU-Raptor Research Site.

ETAP (NSF’s Education & Training Application) requests this information:

      • Establish your account at ETAP
      • Your contact and demographic information
