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.
The application deadline for the Fall 2013 FYRES course is May 10.
Applicants who applied by the May 10 deadline were notified in early June about whether they are accepted into the FYRES course.
In the summer during Passport advising and registration for fall courses, the FYRES participant's fall schedule will be constructed around the FYRES course.
