Water Quality in the Yucatan Peninsula

Water Quality in the Yucatan Peninsula

A newly funded REU program is starting this summer examining groundwater resources in the Yucatan Peninsula! This National Science Foundation funded research program is open to undergraduates with an interest in water science. Six students will take part in faculty-mentored research projects in Cancun, Mexico. 

The 8-week program will be divided into three parts. Part one will be completed at the NIU campus in DeKalb, IL, where students will learn research skills, develop research plans, and study water resources and the Yucatan Peninsula. During this time students will be provided with accommodation at the residence halls on campus.

The second part of the program will take place in Cancun. Students will work on their research projects with faculty mentors and Mexican scientists and undergraduates while staying in local housing. There will be a four-day vacation during which students will visit sites of historical and cultural significance in the Yucatan. 

Students will receive a stipend of $5,000 and all travel and housing costs will be covered by the program.

Students will return to NIU at the end of the program to analyze data and present their findings. 

Students at community colleges and other institutions with limited research options are especially encouraged to apply!
