Funded with a grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture


2017 – 2020

Our REEU program has concluded. Please enjoy reviewing our Fellow Project Highlights.

The USDA NIFA REEU Fellowship in Integrative Agroecology and Sustainability at Colorado State University (CSU) provided research placements for college-level sophomores and juniors from 2017-2020. Fellows participated in work addressing complex challenges to global food security and environmental change. The program was sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) to provide a Research and Extension Experience for Undergraduate (REEU) students.

In Summer 2020, student fellows engaged in remote placements due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, taking part in eight weeks of research that was augmented with professional development opportunities, including workshops, industry interviews, and opportunities to present their summer research findings. Highlights from 2017, 2018, and 2019 can be found in the side navigation bar. Updates for 2020 Fellow Project Highlights will be added soon.
