College students from the across the country will spend 10 weeks at William & Mary this summer to help make the planet greener. Some may study the impact of human activity on Eastern Bluebirds nesting on local golf courses. Others may investigate the effect of mercury contamination on wildlife in the Shenandoah Valley.

Math and science students who have completed Biology 101 and Math 163 are preferred.
Applications are due on February 25, 2009 by 5 p.m. Winners will be notified before April 1, 2009.
