Water Quality in the Yucatan Peninsula

A newly funded REU program is starting this summer examining groundwater
resources in the Yucatan Peninsula! This National Science Foundation funded
research program is open to undergraduates with an interest in water
science. Six students will take part in faculty-mentored research
projects in Cancun, Mexico.

The 8-week program will be divided into three parts. Part one will be
completed at the NIU campus in DeKalb, IL, where students will learn
research skills, develop research plans, and study water resources and the
Yucatan Peninsula. During this time students will be provided with
accommodation at the residence halls on campus.

The second part of the program will take place in Cancun. Students will
work on their research projects with faculty mentors and Mexican scientists
and undergraduates while staying in local housing. There will be a four-day
vacation during which students will visit sites of historical and cultural
significance in the Yucatan.

Students will receive a stipend of $5,000 and all travel and housing costs
will be covered by the program.

Students will return to NIU at the end of the program to analyze data and
present their findings.
Students at community colleges and other institutions with limited research
options are especially encouraged to apply!
