RESEARCH EXPERIENCES FOR UNDERGRADUATES (REU) IN RAPTOR RESEARCH

APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2016 are now Open.  Applications are due by February 16, 2016.  Please visit the Application Tab above to apply.

The REU Site in Raptor Research (REU-RR) is funded by the National Science Foundation and Boise State University.  REU-RR is a 10-week summer research program located at Boise State University, Boise, Idaho.  Field and laboratory research projects are available for students.

The goal of the REU-Raptor Research site is to engage undergraduates in biological research using birds of prey (hawks, owls, falcons, and eagles) as model systems.  Though partnerships among the Department of Biological Sciences and Raptor Research Center at Boise State University, The Peregrine Fund, Inc., Intermountain Bird Observatory, College of Western Idaho, and the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area, undergraduates will spend 10 weeks conducting field and/or laboratory research under the guidance of experienced mentors from academia, government, and NGOs.  Students also  participate in a core program that includes workshops on the biology of diurnal and nocturnal birds of prey, endangered species restoration, responsible conduct of research, applying to graduate school, the publication process, and communication in science.  The summer research experience for REU-RR participants culminates with a statewide interdisciplinary summer undergraduate research conference (ICUR) that provides participants the opportunity to communicate their work to a diverse audience of students and scientists.

Tentative Dates for SUMMER 2016 are May 23 – July 30, 2016

Applications for Summer 2016 are now being accepted.  Please see the Application Tab for additional information and to apply to REU-Raptor Research.  Please know that REU-Raptor Research welcomes your application. We are especially interested in receiving applications from groups underrepresented in science (women and racial minorities), first generation college students, persons with disabilities, veterans of military service, and students from institutions where research opportunities in STEM are limited.
