Hello SAFS Undergraduates:
Chris Grue is recruiting a select group of undergraduates from SAFS or SEFS to assist with the development of a functional predation test using Chinook salmon smolts and smallmouth bass to confirm the safety of a new herbicide for the control of Eurasian watermilfoil. Students will assist with (contribute to) the design of the test and validating the test using the facilities at the SAFS aquatic facility (hatchery).
REU program at WWU Shannon Point Marine Center
Gain hands-on experience doing marine science research on the beautiful waters of the Salish Sea.
The Shannon Point Marine Center is accepting applications for the 2017 Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Program participants work one-on-one with faculty mentors studying themes related to productivity and nutrient cycling in local watershed systems; marine microbial ecology; physiology of symbiosis; larval development; physiology, ecology, and morphology of marine invertebrates; coastal oceanography; and chemical ecology.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is pleased to announce the availability of scholarships for undergraduate students majoring in disciplines related to oceanic and atmospheric science, research, or technology, and supportive of the purposes of NOAA’s programs and mission. Over 100 students are selected each year for participation in the Ernest F. Hollings (Hollings) and Educational Partnership Program (EPP) scholarship programs.
Please share with your networks that intersect environmental and race and social justice.
This student intern will be working directly with me in implementing and embedding an environmental equity and social justice lens within the environmental program and policies at Seattle City Light.
This is a paid internship and hours will be flexible with school schedules.

The application for the 20th Annual UW Undergraduate Research Symposium is now open! The Symposium will be held on May 19, 2017 in Mary Gates Hall.
The Symposium is a celebration of undergraduate accomplishments in research, scholarship, and creative expression in all academic disciplines. Students may present their research either in a poster, an oral presentation session, or in a performing arts or visual arts and design session.
The Mary Gates Endowment for Students is currently accepting scholarship applications. Mary Gates Scholarships provide $5,000 ($2,500 per quarter for two quarters) for students to pursue leadership or research projects. These scholarships benefit students in the current academic year, and are open to all UW undergraduate students regardless of class year, major, residency status, or UW campus. Deadlines are coming up soon!
