The Climate and Sustainability REU at Rice University
The Climate and Sustainability REU at Rice University is a 10-week, paid research internship sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for community college students to work in Rice University’s nanotechnology laboratories. Through this REU, students will gain hands-on experience in research laboratories, participate in various professional development activities, and receive an opportunity to present their research at our annual research symposium at Rice University.
REU interns are expected to:
Work full-time (40 hours/week) in the assigned laboratory (except for federal holidays)
Document summer hours and submit timesheets on time
Attend all REU-related field trips and professional development activities
Submit all course assignments on time
