We are pleased to announce that applications are open for the Aquaculture Experiential Opportunities for Undergraduate Students (AquEOUS) Fellowship, a USDA Research and Extension Experience for Undergraduates (REEU) at the University of Maine’s Wabanaki Center and Aquaculture Research Institute (ARI) and in collaboration with Wabanaki Youth in Science

This unique fellowship offers undergraduate students from around the nation an opportunity to use indigenous science and STEM concepts to solve real-world problems in aquaculture at the University of Maine’s world class aquaculture facilities. Mentorship will be provided by interdisciplinary faculty and indigenous knowledge keepers.

Through this paid fellowship, students will have an array of research foci from which to choose. They will co-design projects using concepts learned from their mentors as well as a seminar, field trips, and workshops in: indigenous knowledge, applied aquaculture science and science communications. Students will live at the University of Maine in Orono, ME or at the Darling Marine Center in Walpole, ME for 10 weeks and will participate in a virtual seminar.

We invite students and faculty to learn more about the Aquaculture Experiential Opportunities for Undergraduate Students (AquEOUS) Fellowship and apply by January 26th. Please feel free to share with anyone who may be interested in this unique program.
