The Research in Material Science (RIMS) program hosts high school students for summer internships to carry out hands-on research for 8 weeks in laboratories throughout the ASRC. Students are chosen from a competitive pool of applicants that are selected in partnership with the Harlem Education Activities Fund (HEAF). The students are provided a generous stipend to support them over the summer, and in addition to their research activity participate in a number of career development seminars.
This program has received funding from the National Science Foundation, the Army Research Office, and American Chemical Society Project SEED, and the Nellie Mae Educational Foundation.
Program Managers: Prof. Adam Braunschweig, Associate Professor, ASRC & Andrew Levine, PhD Student, Graduate Center/ASRC.
