Program: The purpose of the NIH Summer Research Experience Program (referred to as the “Summer Research Program”) is to provide a high quality research experience for high school and college students and for science teachers during the summer academic break. The NIH expects that such programs will: help attract young students to careers in science; provide opportunities for college students to gain valuable research experience to help prepare them for graduate school; and enhance the skills of science teachers and enable them to more effectively comm
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy has announced its 2013 National Geothermal Student Competition. The competition is designed to advance the understanding of geothermal energy as a valued resource by promoting innovation, exploration, and entrepreneurship among the nation’s colleges and universities.
Program: The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation.
Program: The purpose of the Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is to stimulate research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation's research scientists, but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. The University of Mississippi is eligible!
Program: In recognition of the growing interest in environmental issues and careers, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the National Network for Environmental Management Studies (NNEMS) Fellowship Program in 1986 to encourage students to pursue environmental careers. The NNEMS program is a comprehensive fellowship program that provides students an opportunity to participate in a fellowship project that is directly related to their field of study.
Program: The Division of Environmental Biology (DEB) and the Division of Integrative Organismal Systems (IOS) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) encourage the submission of proposals that generate extended time series of biological and environmental data to address ecological and evolutionary processes and resolve important issues in organismal and environmental biology. Researchers must have collected at least six years of previous data to qualify for funding, and these data must motivate the proposed research.
