Bonderman Field Station at Rio Mesa Scholars
Rio Mesa Scholars are students (undergraduate and graduate) and junior faculty who conduct research projects at the field station with funds awarded through either the Rio Mesa Undergraduate Research Grant or the Rio Mesa Young Scholar programs. These programs offer an important opportunity for students and early-career academics to build skills in developing and executing research projects. Scholars, in turn, enrich our research community by providing new information and perspectives on the Colorado Plateau.
