SYNOPSIS

The Undergraduate Mentoring in Environmental Biology (UMEB) Program is designed to enable institutions to create programs that will encourage undergraduate students, especially those from under-represented groups, to pursue a career in environmental biology. The UMEB Program supports projects that provide year-round support for undergraduate students to gain research experience in environmental biology. Environmental biology is broadly defined to include areas of research focusing on organisms as they evolve, interact with each other, and/or interact with their environment, from perspectives that range from molecular to ecosystem levels. Environmental biology also includes molecular studies of environment-organism interactions and environmental genomics. Field experience must be part of the research experience. Projects should emphasize factors that encourage and enable members of under-represented groups to enter, and remain in, environmental biology. The UMEB Program now requires submission of a preliminary proposal.
