Paid Undergraduate Student Internships at the University of Maine

The University of Maine Initiative for One Health and the Environment is excited to announce a new NSF-funded Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program that may be of interest to undergraduate students interested in environmental sustainability. Our fully paid summer program will focus on Accelerating New Environmental Workskills (REU ANEW). From June 3 to August 9, 2019, we will invite 10 motivated undergraduate students to join our faculty and graduate students to conduct cutting-edge research at the intersection of human, animal, and environmental health.  REU ANEW students will have the opportunity to work directly with faculty research mentors, as well as Broader Impacts mentors who are working in the field to apply One Health research to real-world problems. Through our program, students will develop critical research and thinking skills that are directly relevant to future career success, and build lasting professional relationships with their undergraduate peers, graduate students, and faculty and broader impacts mentors. All REU participants will receive a generous stipend and living expenses, including travel expenses and housing at the University of Maine in Orono.

For more information and to apply, visit Research Experience for Undergraduates – Accelerating New Environmental Workskills page on the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture website.  Application review will begin on March 20 and all complete applications submitted before this deadline will receive full consideration. Applications received after this date will continue to be reviewed until all positions are filled.  Please direct any questions you have about the program or the application process to and

Please feel free to post, share, and distribute this announcement with your students and professional networks.  We look forward to welcoming our first cohort of REU ANEW students this summer!
