Announcing a new Research Experience for Undergraduates that combines a month of field work in the Middle Stone Age of Ethiopia with an additional month of museum-based research at the National Museum in Addis Ababa, or a month of laboratory-based research at one of several labs in the US with a focus in archaeology, paleoanthropology, paleontology, geochemistry, geology, archaeomagnetism, and chronology. Supporting Institutions: The University of Texas at Austin, University of Arkansas, Rutgers University, Southern Methodist University, INSTAAR, Illinois Geological Survey, and Addis Ababa University.

The project will pay for all expenses* associated with the field work, museum or laboratory research, and travel to and participation in a national meeting. In addition, students will receive a stipend for their month of field work and month of museum or laboratory research. Funded by the National Science Foundation and the Leakey Foundation.
