TTU Llano River Field Station Becomes SPUR Fellowship Summer Partner

By Timothy Howard, Digital Media Coordinator

The Llano River Field Station at Texas Tech University Center at Junction will be a partner for the 2018 – 2019 Strategies for Ecology Education, Diversity and Sustainability (SEED) Partnerships for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) Fellowship.

The SEED Fellowship is a program of the Ecological Society of America (ESA) that offers undergraduate students the opportunity to have hands-on, engaging experiences with ecology. Each experience also delivers opportunities to learn from ecologists and other motivated peers to deepen student's understanding of ecology and make future career aspirations clearer.

The SPUR Fellowship is the peak honor of the SEEDS program and supports undergraduate students in designing and conducting an ecology research project of their interest.

SEEDS has established a partnership with the Llano River Field Station to offer the SPUR Fellowship to prospective students that are seeking to grow as scientists.

The Field Station has two fellowship positions available for the summer of 2018. There are many research topics available to students including a watershed protection plan, the TTU Outdoor School, or Summer Natural Resource Camps for high school students.

Housing and travel expenses will be provided to the fellows along with all research materials needed. Please see the website for more information about the SPUR fellowship as well as the SEED program.
