Dear REU Applicant: We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, communicating with university officials and the NSF. We’re also following state and federal guidelines prior to making a decision about the status of the program for this summer. We remain hopeful about the possibility to host the REU in Coastal Plain Science Program this summer. We thank you for your patience and hope you and your family are doing well, feeling healthy, and staying safe. Please continue to monitor this site for updates. 

Study the potential impacts of global climate change stressors on organisms and ecosystems of the Atlantic Coastal Plain by participating in research experiences with faculty from the Institute for Coastal Plain Science (ICPS). The Georgia Southern University ICPS REU program in Coastal Plain Science is a summer research program supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Our program is an exciting opportunity for 10 undergraduate students to be awarded fellowships to actively engage in a 10 week interdisciplinary research experience.
  • Students work in a research setting (laboratory and field) with faculty mentors
  • $575/week stipend for 10-weeks (housing and meal plan options included)
  • Students participate in professional development workshops throughout the summer
  • Several field trips and guest lectures scheduled throughout the summer
  • Present research at the end of the program in a scientific symposium
