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.
Participants Must Be:
- U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents of the United States
- Undergraduate students enrolled in a degree program (part-time or full-time) leading to a baccalaureate or associate degree until at least the end of the Fall term following the REU program
- Available for full-time program participation and research during the 10-week summer program and willing to present research at an autumn professional conference
- Willing to abide by university and REU-RR public health and safety protocols
How to Apply:
Applications are collected through NSF’s ETAP (Education & Training Application). You will need to establish an account at ETAP, which will require: contact and demographic information, academic history and research experience, electronic copies of college transcripts and résumé, and information for two academic references (names, affiliations, and contact information). Note that you must manage reference requests and reminders through ETAP, and receipt of letters of recommendation are handled entirely through ETAP. Additionally, the application requires a description of your REU-RR aspirations.

UPDATE: There will not be an REU-Raptor Research program in Summer 2024 due to funding. Applications are not being collected at this time. Please check this website again in December 2024 for Summer 2025 program updates.
