A grant from the National Science Foundation to the College of William & Mary has given Thomas Nelson Community College students Josh Froneberger, Shenna Sikora and Eduardo Davila-Reyes the opportunity to conduct scientific research. For 10 weeks this summer, the three students are working with W&M faculty on different aspects of the Eastern bluebird (Sialia sialis) population ecology research in the Williamsburg area. The grant-funded program intends to provide research opportunities in math and biology to undergraduate students and encourage community college students to continue their education at the College of William & Mary. Students receive a stipend and are provided room and board.
