Students of all class years and majors are encouraged to apply. A strong interest in ecology needs to be demonstrated.

Deadline: February 5th, 2016

From the program brochure:
“Each student will participate in an ongoing study with senior researchers from Harvard University, the Ecosystems Center of the Marine Biological Lab, University of New Hampshire, University of Massachusetts, Boston University, and other collaborators. Responsibilities generally include field and laboratory studies, computer modeling, data analysis, and scientific writing. In addition, students attend weekly research seminars given by nationally known scientists, workshops on research and ecological ethics, and career and graduate school panels. Students will develop their research results and present their findings at a student research symposium.”

“Students are paid a stipend in excess of $5,775 for the 11‑week session which runs from mid May through early August. Excellent on-site housing and a full meal plan are included as part of the program. Assistance with travel costs to and from Harvard Forest is also provided.”
