IDEA (Increasing Diversity and Enhancing Academia) seeks motivated and talented undergraduate students interested in participating in a ten week summer research program and six Saturday Intensives during the academic year. Students will work with UNC faculty on cutting-edge science, participate in graduate school preparation seminars, and share experiences with each other. Research opportunities in the fields of Marine Sciences, Geology, Geography, and Environmental Sciences are available. Previous research experience is not required. IDEA provides the foundation and skills necessary to pursue a graduate degree in the geosciences. This program is funded by the National Science Foundation, Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Pathways into Geoscience (IUSE: GEOPATHS – IMPACT).
