Calling all Science-minded Students!!


Dr. Antoinette Abeyta has been awarded a National Science Foundation grant that will provided paid research opportunities for UNM-Gallup students.  Dr. Abeyta is looking for three students to participate this summer.  Please see below, and the following flyer, for details about the program and submission requirements.  

Research Opportunities for Undergraduates in Earth Science and Civil Engineering  -July 1 to August 16, 2019.
The University of New Mexico Gallup is offering a 8 week Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates in Gallup, NM in conjunction with University of Central Florida, Montclair University, and Denison University.

Over the summer, participants will conduct cutting edge research while learning computer and statistical modeling. Participants will work with a team of researchers across the country to understand the behavior of coastal river systems.

The program is open to undergraduate students interested in civil engineering, geosciences, ecology, mathematics, or related fields. We encourage applications from students who have been historically under-represented in Science – women, Native Americans, nontraditional students, first generation college students, and veterans.

Program benefits include:
·       $5,000 stipend
·       Professional development and technical skill training
·       Travel Funding to present research at a conference
