This program provides recipients with the opportunity to conduct intensive, hands-on research projects in several active and ongoing research areas, including:
Biology, chemistry, and physics of the open ocean
Biology, physiology, and biochemistry of coral reef ecosystems
Molecular biology of marine organisms
Environmental chemistry of Bermuda’s atmosphere and inshore waters
Effects and consequences of global environmental change
Further information on the REU program at BIOS can be found here: www.bios.edu/education/reu/ This includes a list of past projects and student testimonials and links to the application form, an overview of the REU Program at BIOS, student publications and potential BIOS mentors.
Every UW student has a story — about how he got here, what she’s discovered, how they’ve learned to stand out, or fit in. The UW students who tell their stories the best can win $1,500, $1,000 or $500.
The My Husky Story video contest is seeking student-created videos that show how UW students spend their time outside of class. A panel of judges will award $1,500 to the first place winner and $1,000 to the runner-up.
