Research Experiences for Undergrads 2015


Beginning in 2013, the University of North Florida became one of the newest host sites for the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program. The UNF REU Program offers paid research training experiences in Coastal Biology to 10 undergraduate students during a 9-week period from early June-late July. REU participants are paired with Coastal Biologists at UNF, the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTMNERR), and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Jacksonville Field Lab and conduct mentored research projects related to their advisor’s expertise. Students may also have the opportunity to present their research findings at professional conferences.

The University of North Carolina Wilmington is currently recruiting for the fall 2015 cohort in the MS in Environmental Studies program. The MS EVS is an exciting, interdisciplinary curriculum focusing upon linking classroom experience with hands-on fieldwork, culminating in a semester-long internship with an environmentally-related organization. I believe that you’ll find our program to be challenging and rewarding, with a high degree of collegiality among both students and faculty.

MS concentrations are available in Coastal Management, Environmental Management, Marine and Coastal Education, and Environmental Education and Interpretation. An Individualized Concentration is also available for those who wish to design their own curriculum in conjunction with faculty.

More information, and a link to application materials, can be found at: http://uncw.edu/evs/academics-MS_Degree.html. For more information about UNCW, feel free to peruse our web site: www.uncw.edu.

The deadline for fall 2015 application is April 15, but priority consideration will be given to those applications received by March 15. Please pass this information along to any interested students. For questions or additional information, please feel free to contact me. Best wishes.

Comprehensive Rural Health Project INDIA

Comprehensive Rural Health Project

In our experience, no other health program in the world has an equivalent record of long-term and innovative program design; improving health; promoting new methods and technology in other places which continues to be relevant as new community priorities emerge; empowers the community, women and marginalized groups; tackles the root causes of ill-health; collaborates with other individuals and organizations; and provides field training in practical aspects of program implementation for people from around the world.

From an Elon student:  There are presently two opportunities to work with CRHP...The first is the Elon Fellowship. This is a 1-year fellowship where a graduating senior at Elon gets to live and work in India with a well-established NGO. The role of the Fellow is very open and there is great opportunity to do all kinds of work related to health and development. My main projects include working with our Demonstration Farm and in the Science Center, which was set up by Martin Kamela in the Physics Department at Elon. Please find the attachment (description and application) for more information. 

The second is CRHP offers several courses over the summer in public health, agriculture, and documentary filmmaking. These courses are 3-weeks long and provide an opportunity for individuals to learn about the Jamkhed Model of community-based healthcare through one of these three mediums.
