Off-Campus Research Opportunities

Several federal agencies provide research opportunities for undergraduates around the country. The "call" for applications usually starts in early spring. These competitive positions will give you an opportunity to discover another academic community and help determine whether you wish to pursue a research career. As part of the academic program in Environmental Science and Studies, students can use an approved environmental research experience for ENVS 482 Environmental Research. Registering for research credit always requires permission of the program director.
