$4,500 for Research in Science and Technologies

Summer Scholarship Opportunity for Students

Attention, budding researchers. College students in the Nevada System of Higher Education can apply for a $4,500 scholarship to do summer research in the sciences and technologies, especially the area of climate change.

The paid, undergraduate research opportunity is offered to full-time students in any major, and those studying science, technology, engineering and math are particularly encouraged. Any field related to climate change is of special interest.

The project is part of the National Science Foundation's Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) for Climate Change Research. Students who are chosen will receive a $4,500 scholarship from the National Science Foundation for their work. Each student, together with a chosen mentor, will develop the research project.

Western Nevada College Chemistry Professor Mike Sady has served in the past as a student researcher mentor, and believes the experience is invaluable.

“The students will have a sense of the research experience as a team player,” he said. “Science is constantly changing, through exciting fields from particle physics to answering questions about our changing climate. Both are topics that look toward the future,” he said.

Interested students must submit an original research proposal that meets all qualifications. Requirements and additional information may be found at http://epscorspo.nevada.edu/.
