Interdisciplinary Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Coastal Plain Science
This program was recently awarded by the National Science Foundation to several members of the Department of Biology and the College of Science and Mathematics. Student fellows from non-Georgia Southern institutions will engage in summer projects alongside faculty researchers to study the potential impacts of global climate change stressors on organisms and ecosystems of the Atlantic Coastal Plain. The fellowship offers a paid stipend, professional development opportunities, and an opportunity to present the work at a research symposium at the end of the program. Applications for the May 20 - July 26, 2019 program will be accepted starting December 1, 2018. More information about this program is available here.
Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Achievement Program
The McNair Scholars Program is also a new program at Georgia Southern, funded by the US Department of Education. The goal of this program is to prepare undergraduate students for a career in academics and is particularly focused on students from backgrounds that have been traditionally underrepresented in graduate programs. This program provides research and networking opportunities, professional development, and funding for students throughout the semester as well as through directed programs during the summer. More information on this program is available here.

Scholarships available through the Biology Department
This two-semester post-baccalaureate fellowship program is designed to help talented students from groups traditionally underrepresented in their academic disciplines, including first-generation graduate students and those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, to bridge the gap between an undergraduate degree and a graduate training program.
