  1. Faculty affiliated with the Departments of Biology, Entomology, Geography, and Plant Pathology at Kansas State University are available to serve as mentors for students in the REU program in Biology at Kansas State University. The pool of prospective mentors includes beginning investigators who are developing new research projects and senior scientists with well-established programs. All mentors have considerable experience supervising research projects by REU students and have directed study projects by undergraduate students working for research credit during the academic year. In total, the faculty members below have mentored hundreds of REU students supported by the REU Site Grants, REU Supplemental Grants or the early University Research Program (URP). The research interests of this group are broad and span a diverse range of ecological and evolutionary disciplines. The faculty are an unusually cohesive unit because of their common ties to the Ecological Genomics Institute, research at Konza Prairie Biological Station, and the associated Konza Prairie LTER program

  2. The Application Form requires that applicants list three mentors that they would be interested in working with.  Please review the areas of research and websites below and select three possible mentors from the list below.  Please note that a few faculty may be unavailable each year because they are traveling for field work or are on sabbatical leave.
