Advancing the training of undergraduate and graduate students from Mongolia and the U.S. is a major goal of the project. Mongolian students will be recruited into the Ph.D. program at Penn, and both undergraduates and Ph.D. students will be directly involved in the field research. Graduate and Undergraduate Student Opportunities
In addition, the U.S. scientists are committed to offering courses in Mongolia for the scientific community during the summer field seasons. These courses will cover topics related to the research as well as broader subjects in evolution and statistics. Outreach activities planned in association with the annual Mongolian summer festival will be used to help educate the local Mongolian people about global warming, sustainable grazing and the research being conducted.
