General requirements for participation in the Research Experiences for Undergraduates Programs in the Biological Sciences are set by the National Science Foundation. These requirements are listed below:
Applicants to the Sevilleta REU Program must be:
- Citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions (e.g., Puerto Rico).
- Undergraduate students enrolled in a degree program (full- or part-time) leading to a Bachelor’s degree.
- Undergraduate students who are transferring from one institution to another but are not enrolled at either institution during the intervening summer may participate.
Students are not eligible if they are:
- Foreign nationals residing in a country other than the United States.
- Students that have completed high school but have not yet enrolled in a degree program at an educational institution of higher learning.
- Students that have completed an undergraduate degree and are no longer enrolled in a degree program at an educational institution of higher learning.
Requirements for the Sevilleta REU Program:
- The Sevilleta REU Program has no additional requirements. Applications will be accepted from students at any stage of their undergraduate program (freshman to senior) and any discipline, so long as the applicant is interested in conservation biology and ecology.
- One goal of this REU Program is to encourage students that have had limited opportunities to conduct independent research at their home institution. We welcome applications from students at four year colleges, students that are the first member of their family to attend college, non-traditional students, and students from traditionally underrepresented groups.
