Gain an integrated perspective on soil ecology and biogeochemistry with world-renowned faculty to address critical questions using up-to-date field and laboratory analytical techniques and models. We will use an ecosystem approach to study grassland, agricultural and forest soils at the confluence of the Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains.

The Summer Soil Institute is designed for graduate students, post-docs, professionals, faculty, and K-12 teachers.

Tuition is $2,250 for students, $3,000 for non-students (academic, NGO, federal, K-12 teachers) and $5,000 for corporate participants. A limited number of scholarships may be awarded on the basis of merit and needs to partially support tuition costs.  Application deadline is March 18th.
