Research Internships and Academic Enrichment Programs
Summer research internships and academic enrichment programs are a fantastic opportunity to gain experience, improve critical thinking skills, make new friends with students from across the country, and work with professors at institutions like Harvard University, Princeton University, UCLA, and UC Berkeley.
These programs are typically posted from late fall through the early spring with deadlines ranging form late January through March.
The Center for Biological Physics in collaboration with the Department of Physics at Rio Hondo College has created an opportunity for RHC students to work on original research in soft condensed matter and biological physics in collaboration with UCLA faculty.
Rio Hondo – CA Space Grant Consortium Internship
Participants will learn how to program Arduinos, participate in NASA webinars, design and develop a team project under the guidance of a faculty member, and showcase their project during a visit to a NASA Center (JPL or Armstrong). Participants may qualify for a $600 stipend.
