Workshops at UNR to Help Students with Application

Paid Research Work Available to WNC Students

Western Nevada College students who are enrolled full time for the fall and spring semesters are eligible to apply for a $4,000 research opportunity, sponsored by the National Science Foundation and EPSCoR.

Students studying STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering or math) are encouraged to apply by the deadline on Tuesday, Sept. 29. Of particular interest to the research program are students involved in fields related to solar energy, water and/or environmental research, including but not limited to biology, civil and environmental engineering, climatology, computer science, ecology, economics, education, environmental studies, geography, hydrology, journalism, natural resources and political science.

Past recipients of the NSF-EPSCoR research award aren’t eligible.

Interested WNC students are encouraged to utilize two writing workshops at the University of Nevada, Reno’s Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center to assist them with preparing their scholarship applications. A 3 to 5 p.m. Sept. 19 workshop will help students with the contents and arrangement of their application proposal and a 3 to 5 p.m. workshop on Sept. 26 will assist students with fine-tuning their proposals.

Students are advised to bring their drafts, materials and writing tools to the workshops. For more information, contact Bill Macauley at

Research awards will be determined from November 1 through May 31. Applications must be submitted as a PDF document and include all required documentation and signatures.
