We are pleased to announce a new USDA Research and Extension Experience for Undergraduates (REEU) at the University of Maine's Wabanaki Center and Aquaculture Research Institute (ARI) and in collaboration with Wabanaki Youth in Science. This unique fellowship offers undergraduate students from around the nation an opportunity to combine traditional ecological knowledge from indigenous science with STEM concepts from western science to solve real-world problems in aquaculture at the University of Maine’s world class aquaculture facilities. Mentorship will be provided by interdisciplinary faculty and traditional knowledge keepers of the Wabanaki tribes. Through this fellowship, students will have an array of research foci from which to choose. They will co-design projects using concepts learned from their mentors as well as a seminar, field trips, and workshops in traditional ecological knowledge, applied aquaculture science, science communications, and STEM concepts. Students will live at the University of Maine in Orono for 10 weeks and will participate in a virtual seminar before they arrive. We invite students and faculty to learn more about the Aquaculture Experiential Opportunities for Undergraduate Students (AquEOUS) Fellowship and apply by March 15th.
