Application Materials

Interested in becoming a SUPER student?

Whether you want research experience to be more qualified to enter the workforce, or you plan to apply to graduate school, research experience is extremely valuable! It demonstrates an ability to carry out a research plan from start to finish, to work with a mentor, and to communicate your results to a diverse audience. Take this opportunity to work with a mentor to build your research skills, and to gain depth in an area of study!

Please contact Nikki Foxley  for information on how to enroll in the program.

Interested in becoming a SUPER mentor?
We value mentorship in diverse areas of study!

Mentors will be recruited for the 2018-19 academic year in September 2018. However, you may submit an application now! There is a bit of competition to be matched with a student, and the actual pairings are a bit of a science. Please make your research project description as exciting and as detailed as possible. It is okay for projects to be student-driven, and to not have research questions identified.

We are looking for mentors whose research is related to ecology. However, research can be as varied as soils studies, analyzing videotaped wildlife behavior, mapping of trans-boundary conservation policies, or human dimensions qualitative research. Once students are matched with mentors, they will create an annotated bibliography on the topic of their study in the fall semester, and will perform the research in the spring semester. Final projects must be completed by the second week of April for presentation at CSU’s Celebrate Undergraduate Research and Creativity (CURC) Symposium, which hosted 283 undergraduate research posters in 2018!

Please contact Dr. Stacy Lynn for a link to a brief mentor application.
