We invite undergraduate students to apply for a 10-week IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL research program hosted by our GeoCAFES team during Summer 2022.      

This year's theme: Redefining Geosciences

Together, mentors and mentees will explore what it means to be a scientist and will work together to understand their own research within the broader context of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics).
APPLY HERE via one click access.
Application Deadline: Friday, March 4th, 2022 by 5:00 PM EST

In addition to full time research, undergraduate researchers will participate in a number of professional and personal development seminars and mentoring activities. All participants, both in-person and remote, will have a virtual community via GeoLatinas to support their journey.


Participants will receive a stipend of $5,000. Participants must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program at a bachelor's degree granting institution or recently graduated. Travel to MSU, on campus housing, and a food plan will be provided at no cost to the in-person participants. However, if the public health situation does not allow for an in-person summer, GeoCaFES will be conducted completely online. Any changes made will be communicated to candidates in late spring.
