We’re back! The Keck Geology Consortium is offering a full program of Gateway and Advanced projects in summer 2021.
Welcome to the Keck Geology Consortium
The Keck Geology Consortium consists of seventeen liberal arts colleges focused on enriching undergraduate education through the development of high-quality research experiences. Each summer, with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Consortium offers a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program to engage undergraduate students in four- to five-week field and laboratory research projects in the earth sciences. Advanced students continue their summer research projects during the following academic year using cutting-edge laboratory techniques. All students are encouraged to participate in a professional conference. The Keck Geology Consortium is currently administered through Macalester College.
Funding for this REU site is provided by the National Science Foundation’s Division of Earth Sciences, located in Alexandria, VA, to the Keck Geology Consortium (NSF-REU Award No. 1659322).
Keck Program Blog
The goals of this blog are (1) to raise the visibility of Keck Geology Consortium programs, (2) to provide Keck research projects with a venue for communicating the process and results of science, and (3) to foster student learning about communicating science to the general public. We invite contributions to the blog from project students, faculty and staff. Submissions will undergo brief review before posting.
