Research Experience for Undergraduates in Ocean, Marine, and Polar Science
The REU OMPS program objective is to promote the professional development of minority undergraduate students through their participation in ocean, marine and polar science research. The program consists of undergraduates, each student assigned to a specific research team, where they will work closely with the faculty. In addition, seminars, lunch meetings, and social functions are organized to facilitate undergraduate interaction.

Watershed Watch
University of New Hampshire

College students will take part in an introduction to hands-on methods for doing science by studying the Pasquotank River Watershed in North Carolina during a two-week Summer Research Institute. This interdisciplinary course allows students to use a wide range of scientific methods, including water quality testing and satellite imagery analysis to study both the aquatic and terrestrial parts of the entire watershed. By studying the watershed, students learn the exciting aspects of scientific fieldwork and data analysis, along with human and societal impacts on the watershed. Extensive hands-on experiences are offered to stimulate inquiry-based learning, where students are actively involved in answering real questions that lead to an improved understanding of 1) the role watersheds play in natural systems and 2) the societal impacts on and benefits derived from watersheds.

Fayetteville Rise Program

Fayetteville State University Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (FSU-RISE) is a project federally-funded by the National Institute of Health and Human Services (NIHHS) with the overall goal to increase the number of well-prepared FSU biology, chemistry and psychology minority students entering biomedical and behavioral research. Students matriculate in FSU-RISE as sophomores, although upperclassmen may be considered on an individual basis. RISE Scholars participate in three full years of structured educational pipeline activities leading to graduate school including participation in hands-on Biotechniques or Biopsychology Workshops; Enrichment Seminars; faculty-mentored intramural and extramural research; Scientific Communications and interdisciplinary research courses; local and national research symposia and conferences; and a full Graduate Record Examination (GRE) preparatory workshop. Students who are committed to completing all aspects of the program (see the attached 2008-09 FSU-RISE program schedule) and have a strong interest in pursuing graduate study in biology, chemistry, or psychology are encouraged to apply to the FSU-RISE program.
