Advanced undergraduates and masters students will design and carry out environmental science research projects while mentoring high school students with an interest in the environment. This year USF EcoMentors will be partnering with River Ridge High School in Pasco County.
USF students will develop research skills, demonstrate leadership, and deepen their understanding of local environmental issues. Students will also strengthen their social networks by working closely with faculty and environmental professionals.
To participate in the academic program, students must be a sophomore, junior, or senior; masters students may also participate. Students should have a 3.0 GPA in their previous classes and research experience is highly recommended. Students have the option of earning 3 credit hours as an EcoMentor.
