The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) is soliciting applications from interested undergraduate students and faculty mentors at all Louisiana universities and colleges. UROP, established in 1992 by the Louisiana Sea Grant (LSG) College Program, offers the Louisiana undergraduate community funding to support hands-on research experience in marine and coastal resource issues. Previously funded projects have dealt with topics such as coastal ecology, fisheries, aquaculture, environmental engineering, and genetics. A maximum of ten projects will be funded for the period March 2012 to December 2012; each will receive $1500-2500 to cover student wages, supplies, and necessary travel. Both student wages and academic credit may be earned concurrently if the policies of your institution allow this practice. Full-time undergraduate students at all Louisiana colleges and universities are eligible. A written final report of research accomplishments and findings is required. Students are also encouraged both to present their findings at regional, national and international conferences and to publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Applications will be accepted until 16 December 2011. An Application Form and complete information can be found at the UROP website (click following link) Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)
