About the Swarth-Fogel NRS Undergraduate Research Scholarship: The Christopher W Swarth and Marilyn L Fogel NRS Undergraduate Scholarship recognizes the long-lasting value and transformative power that field research can have on undergraduate students’ academic and professional careers, and the importance of creating access for more students to become actively involved in the field sciences.
Deadline to apply: March 24th, 2023
Eligibility Criteria: The student(s) will be engaged in field research at UC Merced NRS sites, or other sites housed within the UC Merced NRS administrative unit (i.e., the Merced Vernal Pools and Grassland Reserve, the Yosemite Field Station, the Sequoia Field Station, the UC Merced SCICON Sierra Foothills Field Station).

Additional info: Student(s) must identify a UC Merced faculty or UC Merced NRS staff member to serve as a mentor and supervisor. While all students are encouraged to apply to this scholarship, students who have made or are making substantial contributions to diversity, equity, inclusion and access in science, technology, and mathematics (STEM) fields and/or research are particularly encouraged to apply.
