Summer Research Fellowship Archives

CREST CAChE Summer Research Fellowship is an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain firsthand research experience working with faculty and student mentors associated with the CREST CAChE project.


Our first cohort of Summer Research Fellows had an amazing summer of accomplishments! Ten weeks saw soil core sampling in the mangroves of Puerto Rico, airboat rides through the Everglades, educational boat trawls in the estuaries of Ten Thousand Islands, panels of experts with advice on future degrees/careers in STEM fields, research-based games with elementary students, and much more.
