Student Research Opportunities for 2024-25

The Keck Geology Consortium, with support from the National Science Foundation (EAR 2050697), offers distinctive research experiences for undergraduates (REU).

Typically, several different projects are available in each of two distinctive programs that are designed for students with different educational backgrounds and interests:

Gateway Program

For rising sophomores (and rare juniors) who are considering a major in science or earth science.

Gateway research experiences are designed to deepen student’s understanding of the nature of the earth sciences and its intersections with socially relevant issues.
