Student Involvement

There are multiple ways for Allegheny students to become involved in the work of the WCRC. The WCRC supports students from across disciplines through its mini-grant program, which funds faculty-student projects in the French Creek Watershed.

Work Study

Work-study during the fall and spring semesters. Students engage in both field and lab work related to our projects.

Summer Research

Students can apply to conduct summer research with the WCRC. The majority of this work is completed out in the field, with a mixture of camera trapping, electrofishing, and sampling for macroinvertebrates.

Independent Studies

Independent studies are offered during the fall and spring semesters. Students can earn 2 or 4 credits by developing and initiating an independent research project within the French Creek Watershed.
