Dear colleagues,
Please help advertise this wonderful opportunity for your students:

Assessment and Sustainable Management of Ecosystem Services at the Nexus of
Food, Energy, and Water. This REU focuses on field- and lab-based research
in areas including watershed management, biofuels, sustainability and more.
Projects are supervised by UA Faculty and vary from year to year based on
the most current work being conducted at UA.

The University of Arkansas, located in Fayetteville, AR, will support the
training of 10 degree-seeking undergraduate students for 10 weeks during
the summer of 2017 (May 22 to July 28).  Room and board will be provided as
well as a $5500 stipend during the program.

This opportunity specifically welcomes Native American undergraduates from
Native-serving two-year colleges, four-year universities, and research
universities.  However, all undergraduates are welcome and encouraged to
apply.  Students will participate in structured lectures combined with
laboratory and field research, and cultural enrichment activities that
emphasize the process of science, the ethic of sustainability,
sustainability of food, water, and energy systems, and the cultural
connections of ecology with tribal traditions. Students will develop and
complete an independent research project with the aid of their mentor(s),
attend and present at a professional meeting, and complete a manuscript.
Students will participate in responsible conduct of research training and
ethics modules interspersed throughout the program.

TO APPLY please submit an online application (
http://ecoreu.uark.edu/Application/index.htm). Two letters of
recommendation need to be emailed or mailed directly from letter writers.
Student participants will be selected by a committee composed of project
principal investigators (PIs) and mentors.*  Women, minority, and disabled
students are strongly encouraged to apply.*
