The Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP) is excited to announce the Minorities Striving and Pursuing Higher Degrees of Success in GEO REU (MS PHD’S–GEO REU) Professional Development Program!
The MS PHD’S-GEO REU joins the MS PHD’S family as a two-phase program designed specifically for underrepresented minority (URM) undergraduates who have participated in a recent National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF REU) program in one of the following disciplines: Earth Sciences, Ocean Sciences, Polar Sciences, or Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences. Consideration will also be given to applicants who have completed REUs in other STEM fields (e.g. environmental engineering, ecology, computational mathematics, etc.) and who demonstrate strong interest in the geosciences and articulate potential benefits received as participants in this program.
Selected participants will attend the December 2015 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting. Financial support to attend the AGU Fall Meeting including air travel, lodging, meeting registration and meals is provided to all students who are accepted to the MS PHD'S-GEO REU program and engage in all MS PHD'S-GEO REU activities.
Application Deadline: September 14, 2015
