Students who are interested in participating in the FYRES course in Fall 2013 must submit an application and have a teacher or advisor submit a recommendation for the student.
To be eligible to participate, a student must
- enroll as a full-time student for the first time at Calvin College in Fall 2013
- demonstrate academic potential or ability
- demonstrate a strong interest in a research experience and science generally.
Students do not have to declare an interest in majoring in an earth science discipline (or any science) to participate. We hope the course will attract students from a variety of disciplines.
Applications are still being accepted!
Although the original application deadline of 10 May has passed, there are still some spots left in the course. Applications are being considered in the order in which they are received. Apply soon!
Applicants who applied by the May 10 deadline are being notified in mid-June about whether they are accepted into the FYRES course. Applicants who apply during the summer will usually be notified within a week after submitting a complete application (including recommendation).
In the summer during Passport advising and registration for fall courses, the FYRES participant's fall schedule will be constructed around the FYRES course.
