Overview: Join undergraduates from around the country for a unique week learning and living research experience in the southern Appalachians. Students conduct independent research in field ecology, evolution, behavior, and physiology under the supervision of resident scientists. REU program provides participants with take home a stipend of $6,250. It also covers all room and board expenses and has a project and travel budget. Program participants live together in eight-person cottages with shared living room and bath. Rooms are double-occupancy. Other housing arrangements can be made as needed. All station residents share three meals a day in the main dining hall.

The focus of scientific research at Mountain Lake Biological Station (MLBS), and therefore of the REU program, is population biology at the intersection of field-based studies of ecology, evolution, and behavior. Student researchers work closely with researcher mentors in compatible areas of interest. Students take leadership roles in all aspects of the study; they design the study and prepare the proposal, collect data and perform analysis, and finally they interpret the results and prepare a written and oral presentation. Compared to many other REU programs, ours offers a high degree of independence in project choice and design. Email mlbs-reu@virginia.edu is you have any questions.
