The Department of Geology & Geophysics at UHM will offer 10 motivated undergraduates the opportunity to engage in independent research alongside scientist mentors at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Participants in this 9-week program will receive a stipend of $4,500 plus travel and room/board. Students will also participate in field trips to sites of active volcanism and a short marine expedition on a research vessel.
Open to US citizens, US nationals, or permanent residents of the United States currently enrolled in undergraduate studies leading to a baccalaureate or associate degree. Minorities and students from institutions with limited undergraduate research opportunities are encouraged to apply.
