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.
Participants will earn $3,500 and work on ecology projects as part of an internship funded by a National Science Foundation grant. The award also includes room and board on the campus of William & Mary. This gives TNCC students a great opportunity to check out the campus and discover the opportunities available to students who pursue a Bachelor’s Degree at William & Mary.
