<x-flowed>Dear Colleagues,

I apologize is this is a duplicate mailing. The Plant Biology Program
at the University of Massachusetts will run a summer Plant Biology
REU program, June 2-July 27, 2002 and we are currently soliciting
applications. If you know of any undergraduates who would be
interested in such a program, please pass along the following
information to them.

Sincerely,
Jennifer Normanly

SUMMER REU IN PLANT BIOLOGY AT UMASS AMHERST

The Plant Biology Program at the University of Massachusetts offers
summer research experiences to undergraduate students interested in
plant biology. Students will conduct research under the guidance of
Plant Biology faculty during an eight week program (June 2-July 27)
supported with funds from the National Science Foundation.
Participants will receive a stipend of $300 per week and room and
board at the UMass Amherst campus. Travel costs will also be provided.

The program will emphasize independent research under the supervision
of a plant biology faculty mentor. Additionally, weekly activities
are planned to foster a sense of community among the REU participants
and to provide useful experience in a variety of important skills
used in a scientific research or teaching career. These include a
field trip to a local habitat, workshops to develop presentation
skills, a career options workshop and a poster session at the end of
the program.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and enrolled
as undergraduates at accredited institutions. Preference will be
given to undergraduates who have just finished their junior year.
Individuals who will have a baccalaureate degree by June 2002 are not
eligible for this program.

The program seeks academically strong students interested in plant
biology. Minority applicants are especially encouraged. The deadline
for applications is March 15, 2002. Application forms and information
about the faculty mentors can be obtained from the program web page:
