RAMP Up Your Research

RAMP banner_croppedThe UCF Arboretum is partnering with the UCF Research and Mentoring Program (RAMP) to provide a paid ecological research opportunity in Fall 2014.

The RAMP program offers students an opportunity to participate in research projects guided by faculty and to benefit from faculty mentoring. Students will also participate in a variety of workshops that were created to increase their understanding and awareness of the graduate application process.

Serving as the academic mentor for students is Dr. Patrick Bohlen, who is a professor of biology and the Director of Landscape & Natural Resources and the Arboretum. Arboretum staff will help coordinate and supervise student research activities.

To be considered eligible for the program students must possess a desire to pursue a graduate education in ecology, environmental science, biology or other related fields.

Students must also be enrolled full-time at UCF, have a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 and have completed 60 credit hours with approximately four semesters remaining in program of study.

The deadline for all applications is Sept. 9, at midnight.
