The Academy of Natural Sciences will sponsor a Research Program for Undergraduates during the summer of 2004. This program is dedicated to training student in research based on the Academy's world-renowned collections in botany, ichthyology, ornithology, entomology, malacology, and paleontology.

This program offers a diverse array of research experiences, which will include field trips, workshops, and seminars. Each student will work on a project with an academy scientist. Example research areas include: revisionary systematics or taxonomy of a group of organisms, evolutionary and systematic studies using morphological or molecular techniques, biogeography, aquatic ecology, and the history of natural science.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and entering their sophomore, junior, or senior year of college and be able to commit to the entire ten-week program. To apply, students must submit a completed application which includes a current transcript, two letters of recommendation, and an application form which includes a letter of intent describing career goals and previous research experience, and including a first and second choice of projects from the web site.
