(PAID) Summer Research Opportunity in Urban Sociology

Are you going to be a student in the fall?  Look at this opportunity if you are!
The Department of Geosciences at Georgia State will host a NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Site this summer called "Addressing Social and Environmental Disparities through Community Geography and Geographic Information Systems".  The program runs June 18th – August 2nd.
Working with faculty mentors, 10 selected undergraduates will engage in community-based research and fieldwork in some of Atlanta's poorest neighborhoods to quantitatively and qualitatively examine neighborhood change, property markets, air and soil quality, urban green spaces, and neighborhood visioning in partnership with neighborhood residents and community groups.
Each REU student will receive a competitive funding package, including: a $3000 stipend, up to $250 in travel support to/from Atlanta, up to $750 for conference presentations, free room and board at GSU, and 3 required texts.
Applications are due Friday, March 23rd @ 5 PM EST. Complete application instructions and the application form can be found at http://csaw.gsu.edu/nsf-reu/application-instructions/

Any questions can be directed to the Dr. Timothy Hawthorne (PI) at thawthorne@gsu.edu or Dr. Katherine Hankins (Co-PI) at khankins@gsu.edu
The CSAW REU site is committed to including students from all socio-demographic backgrounds, and will strive for inclusion of students from underrepresented groups, including women, minorities, persons with disabilities, and first-generation college students.  Each student must be an undergraduate enrolled in a college or university in the United States in the fall of 2012. Students graduating prior to the start of the REU program are not eligibile to apply.  As a program funded by The National Science Foundation, the student must also be a U.S. citizen.
