In operation since 2001, the Tambopata Research Opportunity offers a summer of research and experiential learning for Stanford undergraduate and graduate students in the Peruvian Amazon. Thanks to a partnership with a local Peruvian ecotourism company, Rainforest Expeditions (RFE), researchers are able to stay at three of RFE’s lodges to examine first-hand the challenges to conservation and community development in the Amazon.
Applications for the Tambopata Research Opportunity are due by 5:00 pm on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2014 to both Anahid Sarkissian, Undergraduate Student Services Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org (Bldg 50-51E), and to Prof. William Durham, email@example.com.
Applications are available online at the Anthropology website, under "Department Forms," or under the "Application" tab on this website.
