About this funder:
NOTE: The 2020 Harvard Forest Summer Program in Ecology is cancelled due to COVID-19. This was a very difficult decision for us, as the Harvard Forest Summer Research Program in Ecology and the students involved are a big part of what makes Harvard Forest a vibrant research community. We continue to have a strong dedication to providing students with premier, immersive research experiences.
The Harvard Forest Summer Research Program in Ecology is an 11-week research experience connecting students, mentors, and researchers to pursue scientific inquiry in an immersive field station setting.
Harvard Forest is Harvard University's world-class ecological research hub at the nexus of many national and international scientific networks, which Summer Program students leverage to conduct research and build their careers:
- Long-Term Ecological Research Network
- National Ecological Observatory Network
- Environmental Data Initiative
- Smithsonian's ForestGEO Network
- Organization of Biological Field Stations
Program participants join a community of fellow students, mentors, and researchers from across these networks, gaining experience in the full scientific process by working in diverse collaborative teams, developing data science skills, and building professional networks to launch careers that will make a difference in the world.
This paid internship opportunity includes a $6,600 stipend, full room and board, and travel to/from Harvard Forest.
Harvard Forest is located in the small town of Petersham, Massachusetts (1.5 hours west of Boston).
