Columbus, Ohio Stone Laboratory welcomes college undergraduates to apply for its 2022 Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Fellowship Program. Applications are due by February 25, 2022.

Students selected for the REU program receive a $5,500 stipend, paid at an hourly rate, and free room and meals for the eight-week fellowship experience at Stone Laboratory, The Ohio State University’s island campus on Lake Erie.

Undergraduates from any U.S. college may apply for this competitive, comprehensive research opportunity. The students chosen will learn how to conduct scientific research in the field alongside top scientists. The fellowship runs from June 6 through July 31, 2022.

For Harrison Fried, the REU program was an opportunity like no other. “It covered all costs associated with staying on the island, including room and board, which allowed me to focus on my research. It was hard, but rewarding, work,” said the current Ohio State graduate student. “I was amazed at all of the resources I had access to on the island, from professors and peers to the local charter captains; there were always people around with strong knowledge of the lake.”

REU fellows spend their days focused on research, working closely with their supervisors to design an experiment, collect samples and analyze data. At the end of the program, students give final presentations to their peers and the public via webinar. This summer, students will conduct projects in botany, fish ecology, ornithology and limnology.

Applicants must submit their applications by February 25, 2022. Selections will be made by the end of March. Application requirements and more information can be found at go.osu.edu/reu.

Located on the 6.5-acre Gibraltar Island in Put-in-Bay harbor, Stone Laboratory is Ohio State’s island campus on Lake Erie and the research, education, and outreach facility of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program. The Ohio Sea Grant College Program is part of The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences and NOAA Sea Grant, a network of 34 Sea Grant programs dedicated to the protection and sustainable use of marine and Great Lakes resources.
