Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program

The Jornada Basin Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program allows for students to complete a summer research project with the guidance of a mentor. The mentors are typically associated with JRN-LTER and/or NMSU and study a variety of topics such as microbiology, wildlife, hydrology, and vegetation demography. In addition to their research project, students will have the opportunity to participate in field trips, professional development workshops, and networking events. The Jornada Basin LTER has funding to support a modest number of undergraduate research (JRN-REU) fellowships each summer. For details and application instructions regarding the 2024 REU program, please see the flier and application form.
