MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The National Science Foundation will be funding a new student research project on Lake Champlain.

Ten undergraduate students from across the country will study impacts on Lake Champlain’s ecosystem. Students will also examine the relationship between regional economy and lake health. The program will last for ten weeks.

The students will be paired with a faculty member from the University of Vermont or St. Michael’s College to develop their projects.

UVM’s Jason Stockwell says one main objective of the program is to link natural and social sciences.

Students are being recruited but can also apply online at www.uvm.edu/ecolab/reu.
