Research opportunities: Students will work in one of two research directions with community partners and mentors from University of Central Florida, University of Belize, Georgia State University, and The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s Caribbean Coral Reef Ecosystems Program:

Application process: The priority application deadline is Friday, March 25th @ 5 PM EST. Complete program information and application instructions can be found at www.citizensciencegis.org/ucf-reu-site.
Student reflections from the field: “Challenging, emotional, fun, collaborative, thought-provoking, interesting, real-life, and eye-opening.” These are some of the words used by students to describe our previous research programs. We expect similar experiences in our new REU! Check out a series of short videos from our students at: www.citizensciencegis.org/ucf-reu-site/....
