Environmental research internship apps due

Jan. 28, 2015--Applications for the 2015 EPSCoR Summer Scholars research internship program are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 6.

The Delaware Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, or EPSCoR, has funded more than 250 undergraduate research internships since 2004.

The program takes place over a 10-week period in the summer. In addition to completing an independent research project, interns participate in skill-building seminars on such topics as going to graduate school, research ethics, and how to make a research presentation. Interns also receive a stipend of $4,000.

Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors with a minimum 3.0 grade point average are eligible. Students from any major may apply, but their research projects should be related to the environment, to coincide with the overall theme of Delaware’s EPSCoR program.

Students with an interest in climate, sea level rise, water quality, land use, soil contamination and remediation, environmental sensing and monitoring, economics, ethics, environmental justice, environmental history, or environmental policy are especially encouraged to apply.
