NABS inaugurates INSTAR program

Published On: 5/9/2011

NABS inaugurates INSTAR, a new mentoring program for undergraduate students.

INSTAR will be inaugurated at the upcoming NABS Annual Meeting, to be held from May 22-26, 2011 in Providence, RI. The theme of the annual meeting is ‘Responding to the Global Water Crisis’. ‘Instar’ refers to a developmental stage of an arthropod or insect between molts – the shedding of its outer shell. The INSTAR program is designed for students from under-represented groups or individuals who are the first in their family to attend college who are interested in becoming aquatic scientists. Five fellows are enrolled in the inaugural class. These fellows will present research, network with graduate students and professional mentors, and seek out additional educational opportunities. Programs or institutions sponsoring each undergraduate student provide registration fees and other costs associated with attendance at the conference. There are no additional fees for students to participate in INSTAR workshops or activities. Questions about the program may be directed to Judy Li, Oregon State University (judyli@comcast.net), or Checon Colon-Gaud, Georgia Southern University (jccolongaud@georgiasouthern.edu).
