REU Program

The Sevilleta REU program has been running since 2008 through independent funding provided by the National Science Foundation, as well as through supplements to the LTER awards.

Our site hosts 12 undergraduate researchers each year, 10 ecology students and two art and ecology students. All REU students are fully engaged in every aspect of research, from design and data collection, through data management, analysis (including a two-day Data Carpentries workshop) and presentation. In addition, students receive training in the responsible conduct of research, public speaking, and professional and career development opportunities. Students present their research at the Sevilleta Symposium, as well as at regional and national scientific meetings and potentially publish their research in refereed scientific journals.
