Summer Undergraduate Research Program - KBS

The National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at Kellogg Biological Station near Kalamazoo, MI “Understanding biological responses to global change in a field station community” gives students an opportunity to conduct full-time research in collaboration with outstanding faculty, postdocs, and graduate students.

What are the benefits of an REU at KBS?

  • Join a dynamic group of students and faculty for an authentic field research experience.
  • Learn the process of research: reading the literature, formulating questions and hypotheses, designing a study, collecting and analyzing data, and presenting results as a research poster.
  • Explore if a career in research is the right choice.
  • Build references for applications to graduate school or other professional programs.
  • Participate in professional development seminars to think broadly about STEM career options.
